I have multiple myeloma, diagnosed in Oct 2005, chemo then stem cell transplant in Jan 2006. Remission until relapse in mid 2008. Firstly I have to say that my quality of life is very good and I am grateful that there is so much for me to share and enjoy.
After taking Thalidomide for over a year, I found the side effects increasingly difficult to live with, so have been almost a month on Revlimid. So far - better in some, worse in others. Next week I see my Oncologist and find out if it's managing the MM well enough, so I am in that strange limbo that many of us know - in between blood test and results. Under the Thalidomide, my cancer levels were slowly rising so I have fingers crossed that the Revlimid is working super-well.
cheers - Tjebi.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
