I am going on medicare in December and I have been paying $10.00 for my Revlimid because I have medical coverage through my employer . On Medicare its$1700 per month( give or take). I do not qualify for assistance with Healthwell . I make just over the amount for assistance . With part D ,I have to spend over $6000 in order to exit the medical , then I was told it will be $894 per month. Does anyone know how to get a lower cost?or how to navigate a better plan with medicare?
We question whether that is necessary, since she is still weak and dealing with side effects from past treatments, including neuropathy in her feet from the chemo. Blood test is scheduled for mid-Aug., so we are eager to know the options available for my wife if she is still in remission at that time and also any options if the MM is detected in Aug. We are told that her MM is not aggressive.
Thank you very much,
Roy and Sandy
tried to swing a golf club gently last week....twice.....and the next day his neck and back were tight and stiff for almost a week, we're assuming golf is out for him....wondered if anyone else has tight feeling muscles, tendons....he stretches but maybe not enough....wondered if taking fish oil would help.....maybe not much one can do....he's on 5 mg revlimid every day (maintenance) - thanks for any info.....
My husband started revlimid this week for maintenance. He had stem cell transplant in January 2020 and has been doing well. He is having itching mostly on his scalp. Has anyone else had this and how long did it last? Thank you.

Been fortunate I've had no side effects to this point. Feeling pretty good with daily exercise and trying to keep a positive attitude to help me through this journey.
Seems after reading a lot of the posts, most have taken the next step to do the transplant. I know everyone might be at different stages and treatment plans but just wondering if I can get some feedback as to why these decisions were done to move forward.
Understanding there is not a MM cure but remission is the goal and to stay… read more
Hubby just diagnosed with ONJ. He has no pain, but dentist found exposed bone and infection in the gum. Referred to oral surgeon, but can't get in for two months. Would be interested in hearing from anyone who has experienced this. Oncologist put him on antibiotic, clindamyicin, but that has bad side effects long term, so not anxious to stay on that forever. Cause is probably the Xgeva he was on for a year, but has been off for nearly a year. Thanks for any input from all of you.
