Lenalidomide (Revlimid) Day 4

Well I’m on day four of my 21 day Lenalidomide regime. It is very much like the Thalidomide regime, but without the Cyclophosphamide.

I take the 20mg of Dexamethasone steroids in the morning, rather than at night, it’s much better. I get the shakes a bit and my voice changes a bit on day four but overall I’m ok on them. Feel tired in the afternoons though.

Because of the risk of blood clots and Deep Vein Thrombosis I have to inject myself with the anticoagulant which is the same as the CDT regime I was on using the Tinzaparin on a daily basis.

I’m on the usual bunch of stuff that goes with it, such as the tablets for the stomach, ones for the mouth and ones to stop me getting shingles (again). All these along with my usual pain killers for the pain in my side left from the last lot of shingles I had as well as the neuropathy from the Velcade; Gabapentin, Tramadol and Paracetamol.
