Dear Drs of Cancergrace.org
I have seen a few mentions of multiple myeloma by some of your staff. I have some questions regarding the side effect associated with the drug Velcade.
My brother 65 yrs old has had MM for the last 13 yrs. His numbers were climbing again and a decision was made to do a series of Velcade injections. The numbers dropped dramatically. However, he has been left with severe pain in his legs and complains that his feet feel like two blocks of ice. It is becoming difficult for him to stand and walk. He is taking very strong pain Meds and fears addiction.
My question is whether this is permanent or the peripheral neuropathy can be reversed.
