Trying the lenalidomide again.

Back on the lenalidomide again.

Or rather I will be from next Tuesday.

Have a consultation with my haematologist this morning and after having suffered 3 bad reactions to these drug I was not too keen on taking it again.

However last year I tolerated it really well but that was a 10mg dose, the 3 failed attempts this year have all been 20mg doses.

What we have decided to do is to try a much lower 5mg dose and I know what the danger signs are and to monitor them.

The biggest is my blood pressure as soon as that starts to drop that’s the biggest clue I am having a bad reaction so I am going to monitor it extremely closely.

.I pick up the new supply the next time I am at the chemotherapy suite having treatment which is next week, I’ll let you know what happens.
