They started Tanner’s Velcade treatments Monday at the doctor’s office here in Fort Worth and we were there over five hours.
He will take the Dex (steroids) every Monday morning and then we will go to the doctor’s office around 10:00 a.m. that same morning. Then for 21 days in a row, he will take the Revlimid prescription at night before bed (goodbye to the hair again) and then will “rest” for seven days and then start the whole process over again.
I have no idea how long he will have to do this but we go back to Arkansas the first week in March for more tests.
He hasn’t gotten sick or anything from the first Velcade treatment so that’s a good thing. When they first started the IV, he got pretty light headed and said the room was spinning so I don’t think I will be letting him drive himself to the appointments (as he was wanting to do).
Since treatment is just once a week, we are hoping for much lighter side effects this time!
