Default Severe neuropathy from Velcade

On relapse of mantle cell lymphoma, used Velcade for 4-1/2 rounds of Day 1, 4, 8, and 11 with 10 days off between rounds. Complained of neuropathy in legs and oncologist failed to heed the warnings and proceeded. The Velcade did not work on the mantle cell and now the neuropathy in legs and feet is almost unbearable even after doubling up on pain medication. Be cautious of first signs of neuropathy and STOP immediately.
