Not sure who will be doing the BMB Dr J did the last one and it was Ok ? Helen done two on me and I had one done in castle hill and that was the worse one .
As for the PN so far its not a problem ? I feel something but nowt to talk or write home about it was worse on my CDT just got rid of it for the darn MM to kick back in again…[Read more]
Sory to hear about your relapse,
had my CTD and Stem Transplant in 2009, but it kicked back in last december.#
I just had my Velcade (Cycle four week three) I have Velcade, Dex and Zometa.
I am doing great with it albeit tired a lot but I listen to my body and when it tells me to sleep I sleep Ha ha.
I asked my Consultant Dr Jalihal…[Read more]
Not a problem, I found out that it had come back after having my regular bloods done, but in reality am sure my wife and i had known as i had lost weight again and that for us was an early indicator.
Bearing in Mind all MM patients differ in how they cope from one to another even when on the same treatment that said I had to go on…[Read more]

Sorry in my late reply and am sorry I cant help as so far i have a little bit of back pain but its (or so am told) arthritis ??? am sure your bloods will tell your Consultant if the Myeloma has kicked in and my advice would be to talk to him or his secretary and ask for more bloods to be taken and let them have a look.
Good Luck and…[Read more]
Sorry for the delay in my reply, but a warm welcome.
I am age 58 now and had my treatment CDT in feb 2009 leading up to my SCT in December 2009 was in remission and drug free for four years,
So what you are going through is a doable but you will have to listen to your body and when it tells you to rest rest its the only way.
Well done you are running nearly 🙂 as for the weight loss mine was a fair lot but my Dr (GP) would have told me that should be my normal weight ha ha.
as for hunger am on it with the Dexam afraid but al cope with it and start to cut down. keep on going like you are Keith
