I am doing the infusions, which take 30 minutes. I have not had any issues. My sister had some leg swelling from the infusions, so she switched to the injection, which takes only a few minutes. She has had no issues. Hope that helps!

Also, the injection is maybe painful for the one second when they insert the needle, but just like a poke. If they are willing to give you the Perjeta, and insurance will cover it, it is probably the better option.
