Update about treatment – maintenance

Hi –

Sorry I haven’t updated the blog in a long time.

I did pretty well (number-wise) on the carfilzomib/cyclo/dex protocol.  I did feel kind of crummy after treatment, though. By February of 2020, my doctor decided I could do a few more cycles and then go on maintenance.

Because of the pandemic, I was put on maintenance therapy of just carfilzomib every other week in March. That way, my visits to the clinic would be limited.  More so than the twice a week for 3 weeks every month. My doctor even moved my treatment to a satellite clinic in another town so I could avoid contact with so many people.

I’ll post some test results soon.  Thanks for hanging in there.

Take care, everyone.
