Does Any One Have Information About CYTOXIN, (CYCLOPHOSPHAMIDE)?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Ed's oncologist has said this would be the next treatment for his MM. (diagnosed 2016, had a SCT in 2017, been on Rev, Dara and pomylist, and for the past year and a half, Dara and Ninlaro). His kappa #s are creeping up, but Oncologist doesn't want to change just yet. We asked about Elranatamab and Talquetamab and he said they were too complicated, but what he told us about Cytoxin seemed more complicated than what we have read about either of the two newly approved ones. Just looking for… read more

Stem Cell Harvesting Involving Chemotherapy Before SCT?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am approved for a SCT. Today I went to get my decision from the commission. They want to collect cells before the holidays and freeze them, and the transplant itself to be after the New Year. It's strange to me though that they told me they wanted to administer chemotherapy during the stem cell collection, I quote what the doc said: "Collection cells/chemotherapy/cell collection again"
Isn't the chemotherapy done immediately before the transplant itself? Have any of you had this type of cell… read more

How Is Your Dexamethasone Prescribed?
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

I was given it, take 20mg an hour before with premeds on Dara injection days. When I needed a refill it says 20mg 1st and 2nd day at beginning of cycle. First the NP said it was right- then I asked doctor, he said let’s do what you’ve always done- don’t take on second day.

A MyMyelomaTeam Member

When I started my trial I was on 40 mg of Dex. I started having vision issues and they dropped it to 20 mg. I did not have an uptick in energy and or a crash. I have had fatigue the whole time frame.
