Tuesday, 19 Mar 2013: I’ve taken 15 doses of Pomalidomide (Pomalyst) in Cycle 1 for my relapsed myeloma. I should have had my blood tested today, but Dr. Padavanija is out-of-town and they scheduled me for Friday, 22 Mar 2013 at St. Luke’s Hospital in Twin Falls, Idaho.
I’ve decided that I’m way too puffy and effected from Dex 40 mg weekly on Tuesday’s, so I lowered the dose to 30 mg today, dividing it in 2 doses (breakfast 15 mg and dinner 15 mg). I’ll discuss this with the doctor on Friday at my appointment.
Again, the St. Luke’s Hospital MSTI Boise Pharmacist called today to check on my Pomalyst side effects. Not much different than last week except I am constipated.
- burning scalp (improving a lot)
- creepy legs (
- tired, especially after taking – serious fatigue each afternoon – can’t do anything. Easily out of breath, but lungs are clear with no cough. Don’t let these walk photos fool you in to thinking I’m leading a normal life – I AM NOT!
- constipation – working with 2-3 Senna-S nightly and 2 Phillips Magnesium tablets nightly – without much success. Experience GI reflux on dex day (Tuesday).
Jani, Zoe, Kady, and Kemmer with Mt. McCaleb in the background – Jani ended up walking the Kemmer and Zoe (sisters from the same litter who will be 5 years old on 6 Apr 2013) all the way home and I drove from the Cattle Guard with 12 year-old Kady.
Monday night into Tuesday, I had terrible neuropathy and creepy legs and was unable to sleep…most probably from the Mine Hill walk Monday.
Tuesday, 19 March 2013: I was too tired to do much today. Jani went with Ron rock hunting.
She found a geode.
And a lucky horseshoe for me!
