My back felt like I was run over by a tractor trailer and my check felt like a elephant was sitting on my chest and that a knife wa tearing open my chest while something was pulling out my heart. Yet the doctor wanted to continue this mdeication on me.How is this possible isn't a recall being done on this product?

    Second injection put me in the ER with the most intolerable bone pain that it took my breath away. I am back on nuprogen or neulasta when available.
