Reading the notes posted by everyone, at looks like we should compare the treatments that we have received. I notice one person is taking the Dex------- don't remember the complete spelling, but we call it decodron.
my husband is on this same medicine, but it's only a part of his treatment. The completed treatment has the initials VAD with the D being the word I spoke of above. The other two is in the chemo that my husband receives at home once a month. HIs levels were at 3300 when he started on this protocol. Now they are down to 1500! So you can see that it has worked. I will go into more detail if you email me, and also get the correct spelling. John Hopkins is a great hospital, and our oncologist has lots of experience treating multiple myeloma patients.
