An Update on our Patient

We had to drive into NOLA for a visit with Dr. Safah at the Tulane Cancer Center.

Over the summer, his blood pressure dropped dramatically from the Velcade and Revlimid.  They took him off of his blood pressure medications.

All was well for months.

Flash forward to yesterday.  It was SKY HIGH.  Again at Tulane today it was around 180 over something.  An hour later it was 160 over something.

So, Dr. Safah wants to get his blood pressure normal before any new chemo.

We have an appt. with our family doctor tomorrow morning, then a meeting with our Slidell Oncologist shortly after.

Once again, Dr. Safah is calling the shots.  We go to Slidell for treatment out of convenience.  The new plan is Kyprolis and Dex.

Once his blood pressure is normalized, they'll begin giving him infusions of KYPROLIS:


He'll be taking that along with Dex.

Wish us luck!
