Re: Does Anyone Have This Cancer?

Thanks for replying. Do you know if there has been enough data to show that stem cell transplants actually work in Myeloma patients? My mom died from Myeloma 17 months ago, she was 81 years old, she was diagnosed in 1997. I just found out some of the test results and they seem sure that I have it. I saw a Hematology/Oncologist this past Tuesday. He looked over all the tests I had so far, ordered another blood test, then sent me for a Bone Survey which I had yesterday. All the blood test so far came back abnormal immunoglobulin levels, including immunofixation serum that show a spike in proteins. I tell myself I am not overly stressed about this but my hair is falling out in large amounts so I would say that I am. Until I get results I just sit and wait, which everyone knows is not a easy thing to do.
