    After being on Revlimid, it was determined that Velcade would do a better job in getting my numbers down to a proper level for a stem cell transplant (autologous). Within 2 cycles I was ready. I had the transplant and within 4 months I was classified as CR (complete response). It will be 2 years in May 2010 and my numbers are still good.

    I began chemotherapy soon afterwards but I don't think with Velcade. I went to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in the summer of 2008 to have extensive chemo in preparation for a stem cell transplant which she had soon afterward. When I returned to Florida, where we live, in early September 2008 my oncologist put me on Velcade. So far, so good. Even though I have side effects suc ... Show Full Comment
