But it's more painful, time consuming than common treatment, dermatologist notes

Just got back from seeing my doctor at MDA and I am in remission. This is three years since SCT. Currently I am on Rev 25 mg with once a week Dex 20 mg and I will be staying on this treatment since it is working. Bone Survey and Bone Density came back normal and nothing new showing up. My bloods look ok too. We didn't get the urine results back yet maybe in a couple days.

I am so glad you got the 'up lifting' news and the 'R' word was used, (remission)!
I am RCC, I have been clear since surgery, for just over two years; go back for scans and labs in May. I am very eager to hear the 'R' word! :)
Stay strong, positive, have hope and faith and enjoy each new day, like never before!
Prayers and blessings,

That's great news Hop. Hopefully many, many more years of remission.

Thanks all, and I wish the same for everyone else.
If you all remember a year ago the Myeloma started to come back and that is when they increased the Rev 5 mg (that I was on for maintenance) to 25 mg. So the low dose wasn't doing it's job. It's amazing how these drugs work differently on different people. I go back to MDA in 3 months.
