    I have Multiple Myeloma. And I also have CKD. I took Revlimed for 2 cycles. The side affects were terrible so I stopped this month Dec and I will continue again In Jan 2017.
    Since I do dialysis 3xs a week my question is. While I’m there cleaning out my blood in Dialysis is also taking my meds Revlimed out of my system ?
