Thai food and velcade do not mix...

I have come to the conclusion -- after two similar experiences eating spicy thai food from a restaurant that I used to love -- that either my constitution has been radically altered by what I've been through, or there's a specific reaction between an ingredient in that food and the meds that I'm on.  Anyhow, long story short is I was far sicker than any chemo last night.  Who knew the primary ingredient in Chicken Gra Pow was melphalan?

For reference next time, I will attempt one Senna pill on Wednesday morning.  Tuesday night is too soon; Wednesday night a smidge too late.

    Sorry you're not feeling well, but your comment about melphalan made me howl! I think that you are on to something. Thai-eloma infusion health food. Pad Thai Protonix, Green Curry Docusate, Satay Lovenox, Khao Phat Dex. Might not move well here in the Ozarks, but what about CA? Hang tough! Have a good weekend. Sean
