After 7 chemo treatments last year that took the cancer in my marrow down to 15%, my doctor put me on 200 mg. of Thalidomide daily. But i am having side effects...my fingertips and toes are numb, and the rest of my feet and fingers are semi-numb. He has reduced the dose twice, and now i am only taking 50 mg.a day. But he is worried that the side effects may become permanent and is considering taking me off the drug altogether. Is anyone else having problems with this drug? What was done about it? Was anyone on the drug and taken off of it because of the side effects? If so, what are you doing now?
