One man's experience with multiple myeloma

Let’s all pause for a moment and remember all those lost eleven years ago and pray for their families and friends.

After having trouble sleeping lat night, today was a pretty good; somewhat tired so I left work an hour early. I’ve had issues with nausea today and took ginger root capsules with lunch and dinner. This seems to be typical now on dosing days and for one or two days after. All-in-all, quite manageable.

Beginning of dosing cycle 7

6:25 AM – Took my cyclophosphamide.

7:30 AM – Took my dexamethasone and acyclovir along with my vitamins at breakfast.

9:50 AM – Arrived at Lynn Cancer Center.

10:10AM – CBC sample taken by Ana.

11:00 AM – Velcade injection given sub-cu by Karen.

– Arrived home feeling a little tired, as usual.

Spoke with Lisa about the curcumin. She said it would be perfectly OK to add this to my regimen. Went to Vitamin Shoppe who did not have the Drs. Best version, nor did the two closest stores. So I special ordered (2-4 weeks); I’ll order some on-line too.

True to his word, Abdel sent me several very useful links. I looked at them briefly at 4:30 am, but will spend more time with them later today.

Kathleen and I went to church at St. Andrews this morning. I was able to get some intensive healing prayer (soaking prayer) from the members of the Order of St. Luke. This was a moving experience. I felt very much at peace afterwards.

I’ve looked carefully at the Curcumin Protocol and other links that Abdel sent me. I plan to ask Warren if it is OK for me to try the curcumin. Here is the link to the Curcumin Protocol at Margaret’s Corner Blog: Margaret’s Corner Curcumin Protocol

Curcumin is found naturally in turmeric, a spice common in South Asian cooking and is an ingredient in curry powder it’s what gives both their yellow color.
