Happy New year!
I am on the Clinical Trial of V plus I for the last year. So far I am MRD negative in the Blood and CR on the MRI. I am Unmutated and 17P Deleted so also very concerned.
I had an MRI at the end of the year since I was getting bloated and had more urgency urinating.
I was very afraid it might be my stomach nodes growing again. Fortunately the MRI show my nodes were not growing!!
I started taking the Venetoclax after dinner about 2 months ago and I think that caused this. ( I found out I was supposed to take it with food) Before that I was taking the Venetoclax with Imbruvica before bed. I am going to trying taking the I plus V before bed a few weeks and see if that helps my Stomach. I take it with a natural prostate pill, B-12 and Biotin as well. So maybe that is kind of like taking it with food. I added Biotin about 6 months ago. That might cause stomach issues too. I am not sure.
Bottom line is stomach bloating can cause dull stomach pains , fullness and bladder urgency . These are the same symptoms as nodes growing in ones stomach!!
I do not have nodes growing in other areas so that was good as well.
I just wanted to share what I found. I used up my max out of pocket on my insurance so I wanted to do it before the end of the year!
