I have been writing a lot about the advantages–and risks–of taking nutritional supplements while undergoing chemotherapy.
While the performance of the two most common multiple myeloma oral chemotherapy medications, Thalomid and Revlimid, don’t seem to be adversely effected by what we eat and drink, the same can’t be said for Velcade.
Never having used Velcade myself, I wanted to link you to an article which covers the subject in great detail: The Whole Green Tea Thing! by a blogger named Lori Puente
Lori is caregiver to her husband, Dave. Dave has used Velcade successfully for a long time. I feel Lori’s medical background and attention to detail makes her well qualified to have the last word on the subject–for now.
Give her blog, Riding the Wave – Multiple Myeloma, a look. It’s really good!
Feel good and keep smiling! Pat
