Has anyone else experience injection site reactions with Velcade? Or heard of the bubble… read more

Anyone Taking Kyprolis Which Is Similar To Velcade But Can’t Take Anymore Since Gave Me Neuropathy Called Kyprolis

I hear it could cause heart issues and Dr says I will need to be monitored regularly with EKG to see if my base line changes. Is anyone currently taking this new drug?
Thanks,
Jim

I was on Velcade , then switched to Kyprolis, which was not as effective as Velcade. Had no side effects with Kyprolis. Am now back on Velcade Injectable, which works better,

Bone Pain - Revlimid & Valcade

Bone Pain - Revlimid & Valcade

New patient here with this treatment. Have bone aches and pains in my side and back and joints. Is this common?

A MyMyelomaTeam Member said:

Pain is common, even after achieving remission. Usually caused by compression fractures (even ones that have healed) pressing on nerves.

Revlimid

Revlimid

Just was diagnosed on Wednesday and they are going to start Velcade, Revlimid and Decadron next week. I was reading that you must take a blood thinner with the Revlimid. Oncologist hematologist recommended a baby aspirin. Is this what everyone else is taking with Revlimid to prevent blood clots. Or are you taking something stronger? The risk of blood clots makes me nervous.

A MyMyelomaTeam Member said:

Yes, that’s what I take since 2019. Works ok. I’m in remission since also.
