Leg Weakness

Leg Weakness

My husband was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2016. He's undergone treatment first with Revlimid/Velcade/Dexamethasone then on maintenance dose of Revelimid, and now on Darzalex/Pomalyst/Dexamethasone. He tolerates the treatment welll, but has serious weakness in his legs. Without his arms helping to propel him up, he wouldn't be able to stand. His balance has progressively gotten worse.

Thanks for your response, Sue. I'm happy to hear you are doing better without treatment. This weakness began before treatment started in 2016 and has gotten progressively worse over the years.

I also had weakness, did therapy and nothing helped until I quit the revlimid and dexamethasone and then it too a while. I have not been on any maintenance since 01-2019 and continue to be in complete response. I was high risk and I am doing much better without any chemo or maintenance. I was DX on 08-2017, 1st SCT WAS 01-05-2018 & 2nd SCT ON 03-16-2018. Sometimes your body needs time to recover from all the chemo and let it fight the cancer
