    No she did not get a 2nd opinion. She just started her chemo treatment. Doctors were concerned that a needle biopsy of the axiliry node was positive for cancer. For that reason they wanted to start chemo right away.

            Dear Robin, Thanks for your post. I will look into the options your have suggested. I'm hoping the Doctors will be very clear about her current situation. She is only 43 and has one child, an 11 year old girl. They are so, so, so, very close. Tomorrow she will she the Oncologist and we will see what they have to say or recommend.  Thanks again, God bless you and be well.

                      I've been on revlimid for over 3 years as well. GI symptoms are a side effect of this med. At one point mine got so bad they had to lower the dose. I've not experience problems with bad taste. Revlimid has been very beneficial in treating my Multiple Myeloma. Good luck and be well.
