Default canada

My name is Julie. I live in canada and I am 43 years old . I have Multiple Myaloma . I have had chemo and radiation and a transplant . Now I have plasma cells growing in soft tissue on the left side of my body and I would love a chance to be able to take velcade.I have tried Thalidamide and it makes the end of my fingers and toes numb . It scares me to think that it has caused nerve damage.Mind you drugs affect people differently.I am hoping this drug become available in Canada.<br><br> Thanks for reading

Hi Julie I live in Canada as well and my father has Multiple Myaloma. He has had it for 12 years. I Know that the Velcade treament is available in Canada because my father will be starting treaments after Easter, but the drug is not fully covered. My parents must pay 20%.<br>Maybe you should talk to your doctors about this new treament.<br><br>I hope this helps<br>Good Luck MY thoughts and prayers are with you and your family<br><br>Carol
