Re: Does Anyone Have This Cancer?

Just wanted to say hi and let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know how hard the sitting and waiting is. Although I haven't had myeloma, I am a cancer survivor and know what it is like to sit and wait on test results.
Hang in there and keep us posted!

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. Until I get results I just sit and wait, which everyone knows is not a easy thing to do.
