My Mom is 73, diagnosed multiple myeloma in 2014.
she was treated with:
V.A.D + steroid
+ radiation spinal column )D2
after that she got Thalidomide + steroid for 5 years and aredia for 3 years.
She suffers from neuropathy. Osteoporosis and Hypothyroidism.
After that remission for 5 years
last month they did blood test & CT pet and found that multiple myeloma is relapsed.
she must start treatment immediately.
The want to give her Velcade injections in two weeks - 4 injections.
I would like your advise:
1. do you think Velcade is the right one for her? We heard there are new treatments: Kyprolis, Carfilzomibe do you have any idea what we need to ask the doctors?
2. any one has a similar story that can tell us some tips?
thank you in advanced
