Edd
It would be a blow to go out of remission.  I am betting that does not happen in that time period.  Medicine is a funny thing and sometimes needs adjustments.  I know it is not the same but my old man has heart disease and has been improved with medicine adjustments even though the old prescriptions were good for some time before the adjustments.  I am rooting for you.  I hope this message helps more then hurts.
Good luck

 Thank you all for reading/answering. I waited till today to answer as I had a appointment yesterday with my oncologist. My blood number's that are watched for refractory purpose's are staying level and only went up a few number's during the 4 weeks I didn't take any chemo medicine. My Dr. decided I should return to taking the chemo + now an extra steroid med to control the itching an rash. This will be ongoing to keep the myeloma at bay. I go to a forum called "smart patients" where we talk about our cancer's, there's a sub section for each type. In talking with other patients who have multiple myeloma they have been on this drug combo for yrs.and doing well. That's good new's for me as back in 2016 I thought I only had 3to5 yrs. to live. Now I look at yrs. and tens of yrs. I could go an live fairly well.
 Thank's everyone for keeping us in your thought's and prayer's.

Thank You my friend for the update.  It sometime seems that life is a moving target and thankfully you are in the best of care.  My Prayer is that you can continue to maintain your stability and remission.

Well, wish you did not need to continue the combo.  However the prognosis sounds good, glad to hear!
