... very first day she took it, she had problems sleeping and breathing so after a visit to the Cardiologist, she now has officially diagnosed congestive heart failure. She has historically had issues with her heart which had subsided but we want to understand now whether the Pomalidomide could be the primary factor in why the onset of Congestive Heart Failure has come on so quickly. Perhaps a significant side effect to this drug? Questioning whether you know other patients who experienced this and what treatments they followed to support continuing on the Pomalidomide treatment for cancer without having the congestive heart failure finish their life too quickly.
I'd appreciate your thoughts, advice and/or experience.
Cheers,
Chris
