Will Procrit cause Revlimid to be less effective?

I went in remission 4 months after IV Velcade. It was a complete remission. That means no cancer cells in blood or 24 hr urine. I was put on Revlimid and remained in remission for 20 months. I did get procrit when my Hemoglobin was below 12. I only had a few injections. The cancer showed cells in the urine but not in blood. At first the cells doubled then tripled. The revlimid was stopped and I am now on Velcade injections every 2 weeks. The procrit did not cause the rev. to be less effective. My Oncologist told me this cancer has a history of becoming resistant to Revlimid as well as other treatments. I did not have enough procrit to do and interference in revlimid treatment. The Velcade injection is new, approved, and less side effects. The future of this cancer is is a cure in the near future.
