Hi, Everyone---has Anyone Had Experience With A Drug Called "revlimid"?
A MyLymphomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

The doctor suggested that I take it orally for 1 year because it penetrates the blood brain barrer. I had cns lymphoma so this would prevent that from returning. The doctor said to take my time with the decision & I need some time without medication.
Thanks!
