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,

What Treatment Can Anyone Recommend For Neuropathy On My Feet And Toes?

What Treatment Can Anyone Recommend For Neuropathy On My Feet And Toes?

Drugs treatment plan was Revlimid, Velcade, Dexaethasone. I stopped the Velcade once numbness and tingling got worse. I continue now with lower dose of Revlimid and Dexaethasone. The pain in my feet has gotten worse and have tried natural remedies but no relief. Dr prescribed Gabapentin and have taken now for a few weeks but was told it takes longer before I would notice if it’s helping. Had some bad side effects so now taking Lyrica which seems to be helping to take the burning sensation away… read more

Has Anyone Who Is On Velcade And Dex And Xgeva Experienced Shortness Of Breath When Climbing Stairs Or Exerting Ones Self?

Has anyone who is on Velcade and Dex and Xgeva experienced shortness of breath when climbing stairs or exerting ones self? Our doctor knows about this, and has recommended an Echo cardiogram, which we will do, but we're wondering if it's med related and not heart related.
