My current regimen for Multiple Myeloma

Leave a comment

I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in Oct 2011. I Underwent Autologous Stem Cell Transplant in Dec 2011.

I was on Thalidomide from June 2012 to Dec 2014.

In Dec 2014 my plasma cells started increasing and my Oncologist suggested that I go for another Transplant. I was put on Lenolidamide.

After some research on the Internet I started taking Ayurvedic medication. After three months my condition improved.  I met Dr Kochar in Apr 2015 and started taking his medication along with Lenolidamide.

On the advise of my Oncologist , I stopped Lenolidamide in Feb 2016 , as I was in remission.

That was the most miraculous moment in my life 🙂

I continue to take Ayurvedic medication prescribed by Dr Nitin Kochar, Mumbai.

I am currently taking the following Ayurvedic medicines :

Curcumin                                                                                                                                         Ashwagandha                                                                                                                             Tinaspora cordifolia                                                                                                                     Satavari                                                                                                                                           I also take another tablet which is a mix of several herbs.

I also take allopathic supplements like Renerve (Mecobalamin), Antoxid HC (Selenium+Copper+ zinc ) , and a tablet whenever my uric acid levels are on the higher side. I also take Folvite daily.

I fast one day every week.

Exercise is always recommended but I was unable to do any form of exercise all these years as I felt weak. I now feel strong enough to go for a walk . I started going for walks since one month and I am enjoying. I currently walk a distance of 1km in 15 mins, straight after work before I go home.

I do pranayama and meditation along with few simple yogasanas in the morning before I go to work.

I also follow the diet prescribed by Dr Kochar.

Dr Kochar has put a smile back on my face.
