Well, gang- This Velcade/Revlimid treatment has really clobbered him.
Over the course of 8 days, he was admitted to 2 separate hospitals overnight.
His neuropathy started traveling up his legs, just below the knees.
He gets extremely dizzy and almost falls down.
Blood Pressure is either very low or slightly elevated.
He’s seeing flashes of light.
He’s now walking with a walker.
His hands are starting to go numb.
You get the idea- he’s a MESS.
So, his Slidell Oncologist took him off of Chemo.
We’ll be heading to Tulane Cancer Center soon. We have an appointment for the 31st, but they’ll probably want him in there sooner.
(Thalidomide was like a walk in the park compared to this treatment!)
