Just to let you all know that Revlimid has now been put on the PBS in Australia making it 'affordable' for most people. However, from what I have been told there will be no more Revlimid given to patients on 'compassionate grounds'. I have been on it for over 4 years now and it has been a miracle which has certainly kept me alive! I have been truly blessed and hope that others get the same results as I have had. I believe that the reason that it has worked so well is because I am on such a low dose -- 10mg, taken with aspirin and no dex. I had hideous side effects from all the other chemo's, but being unsuitable for a transplant I had to try each and every drug until we found the one that worked best for me -- and Revlimid has been that drug!! i pray that this continues for many many years to come. Best wishes to all, Cath

I have my maxed amount of epidural shots of my cervical DDD....(and no one cares about my lumbar DDD)..... I've done physical therapy, muscle relaxers, Amitriptyline, Nortryptiline, desipramine.....narcotics... So I decided to go to a spine specialist and they have me on Gabapentin. Its been two weeks and it did nothing for my lumbar ever... but it did seem to help my cervical and arm/hand pain...
