How Does Caffeine Affect You?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

How does caffeine affect you? Since I’ve been home from the hospital, I’ve started drinking regular coffee. Lately, I’ve noticed my heart rate is regularly between 100-120 with a resting heart rate of 85-95. I’m wondering if I need to switch to decaf.

Velcade, Dex & Liver Damage
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband is on Velcade and Dexamethasone and up until now has had very few difficulties. However, in recent CMP and Gamma GT tests, the AST and ALT have been high, as was the Gamma GT number. He's being referred to a Hepatologist, but I am wondering if his MM protocol could be causing this. Been a year and a half on this protocol without any problem. Anyone else had any liver problems?
