If you skip over the fact of the cancer, I'm a very fortunate guy. The CC-4047 trial is so far very successful for me. After the first one-month cycle, IgG dropped from 2960 to 2230, and after the second cycle it is now 1610. Similarly, M-spike dropped from 2.7 to 1.9, and now to 1.4. This brings my markers back two to three years in just two months.
Best of all, side effects have been quite modest so far, the worst coming from the dexamethasone, not the CC-4047. The regimen will continue for another cycle, probably many cycles, but at half the dose of dex.
I am VERY happy!. Time for celebration. Much more to say about the results and my conversation with Dr. L, but no time to post it tonight. Big weekend coming, so it may be next week before I can bring it all together.
