Starting Treatment Of Revilmaid And Velcade. Will This Get Rid Of My Back And Rib Pain? What Are The Side Effects?

Are you taking Dexamethasone with your Valcade? That will keep you up at night . It may help with the pain once it starts working . Your bones will start healing . Good luck with your treatment. I went into remission for 41/2 years after 4 months of Valcade and Dex.

My severe pain ended but I had lesions that had damaged my bones in six places. I take 10mg of oxycontin (slow release) in the am and 10mg in the pm. I have 5mg oxycodone(breah through) when I need it but have not taken it in over one year. Good luck.

Hi Bythebayou, your back and rib pain should start to go away pretty quick after treatment, side effects will be weakness with physical activities, and other side effects are different for each of us. Hope you start to feel better soon.

I just did Valcade and Steroids and had Fractured ribs. It definitely helped me heal and get out of pain. I pray it works for you!
