: I have been waiting to be diagnosed for a long time now for symptoms ranging from recurrent infections to Generalized Lymphadenopathy and Splenomegaly. I had bloodwork done recently that led the Onc/Hem I've been seeing to look at the possibility of Multiple Myeloma and they had me have a Bone Marrow Biopsy. This showed plasma cells increase and now special stains are being done to check on that. The Onc/Hem did say that he thinks the lymphadenopathy, etc. might be secondary to this, if this is MM. Can anyone tell me about their experience with MM and what their particular symptoms were? I would really appreciate it.
My lady was recently diagnosed with MM based upon the blood marrow test, certain cells in a 24 hr urine test, and bone pain. Prior condition was MGUS. No unusual symptoms preceeded the diagnosis.Sudden appearance of kidney failure was the only indication.
