I had my first subcutaneous Velcade injection in the back of my left arm yesterday, February 27 2012. The medicine is a bit stingy on the way in, but resolves quickly. This is a picture of my arm 20 hours after the injection. It looks red, but it does not hurt. This started my 2nd Cycle of Maintenance Chemotherapy Velcade once a week for 4 weeks.
I also received 20 mg of Dex intravenously and Zometa yesterday February 27 2012.
I start 14 days of Revlimid 10 mg tonight, February 28 2012.
