I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma October 2006. At that time I had spine surgery for a large tumor on the spine. Had a Stem Cell Transplant March 2009 at MDAnderson in Houston. I am in remission at present time. Started on Thalomid for maintenance on January 20, 2010. I started with a 200 dosage and was dropped to 100 and then on 50 due to my Platelets dropping. I have currently switched to Revlimid 5 mg for maintenance.
Update: In March 2011 my test results showed my plasma cells have returned and possibly myeloma is back. Increase of Rev to 25mg and Velcade w/dex was done for one cycle with good results then a second cycle of Rev 25mg and Velcade. I completed 4 cycles of Rev 25 mg and Velcade and should be back in remission. Update: In November 2011 counts were acting up so they added dex 20 mg once a week with the Rev 25 mg and I have been back in remission once again.
