    Multiple clinical trials

    Clinical Trial

    While they each initially worked (first couple of treatments) I got bumped out of each one when the myeloma came back strong.

    Dexemethisone and subcutaneous Velcade got me to complete remission. Steroid side effects make me groggy or wide awake and sleepless.
