Day 4 in Cycle 5. Dosing day 2.

Lower leg pain struck again at 2:30 AM this morning, 2/10. Seemed slightly worse, 3/10, by 4:30 AM. I’m wondering whether I should take today’s dose of Velcade or not. I will discuss this with Lisa when I get to Lynn Cancer Center this morning.

7:30 AM – Took my dexamethasone and acyclovir at breakfast along with my vitamins. Had a lighter breakfast than usual. Feeling bloated.

9:45 AM – Arrived at Lynn Cancer Center.

10:30 AM – Spoke with Lisa about my side effects and we discussed palliative treatment. She said I should try acetaminophen for the pain and a gas product for the bloating. She encouraged me to go ahead with the treatment today to which I agreed. Lisa will call me tomorrow to see how I’m doing.

11:20 AM – Received my Velcade injection sub-cu from Lyn.

On my way home I picked up the gas relief product.
