@ancopau1998 Let me welcome you to Mayo Clinic Connect! I see you have posted in a couple of different conversations here today, good for you for jumping right in!

Like you, I am a multiple myeloma patient, taking Revlimid 21 days on, 7 days off. Along with a weekly dose of Dexamethasone and SMZ TMP for antibiotics. Since I also deal with a rare kidney disease [not related to the myeloma] my oncologist decided we would go very slow in treatment in order to not stress the kidneys any more than necessary. What dose do you take for the Revlimid, if I may ask?

Neuropathy is the pits, isn't it? I have it in my left foot, mostly just numb, same as you! It's hard to remember to step out with my right foot, since it is way too easy to lose my balance with a numb foot! Do you have that problem, too?

How long have you been in treatment? How were you diagnosed?
