Yesterday, after the checkup I got my Velcade again. The dose was lowered with 50% because the results are good but my neuropathy was somewhat increasing. On my hands and feet it’s manifest, so down with the dose.
Also the prednis(ol)on is going down from 20 mg to 10 mg daily. I hope my nights will be a little longer and my Word-feud partners will not receive nightly words on their screens.
I spoke to my hematologist about the possibility to administer Velcade subcutaneously. So injecting directly under the skin instead of through an IV.
Advantages are it’s faster, no need of an infusion, but the biggest advantage is that this way it causes less neuropathy. If you want to know more, click on the link.
She would try to give the next gift subcutaneously and she said it will become common from January 2012. I hope this will work out. But…..I’ll keep you posted through my blog
