Has anyone had their oncologist recommend this new drug yet? 
I would like to hear from anyone who knows about it as it is something that I will be asking for. 
thanks in advance,

Hello Ambera

I've had a look on the forum and we've not had any other members post about this treatment but I did remember reading a BBC News article about Phesgo just last week and my understanding is that this is a fairly newly approved treatment. 

If you'd like to have a chat with one of our team of nurses I'm sure they will be happy to talk things through with you. They're available Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm on 0808 800 4040. 

Best wishes,

Hi Ambera,

I had my first Phesgo injection last Wednesday. The injection itself took around 5 minutes to administer & wasn't too uncomfortable. 
I had a bit of a lump on my leg afterwards, and a sore leg that night, but I would/will be happy to have it again in a few weeks. 
Hope that's helpful. x
