  • Hello Kelly
    It’s not often I come on to Myeloma UK, as I lost my husband over 3 years ago, but Myeloma as come into my life again ,as a friend has just lost her husband with Myeloma ,so I looked into the site.

    First you have to know about a Myeloma, a doctor might only see it once in his life time,so GP seldom pick it up, usually it’s discovered…[Read more]

    I was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer in June of this year,although it’s very…[Read more]

  • Hi Vicki, I have already tried to reply to your message but I lost the post somewhere in the ether. Apart from sport which Stephen loved and I loathe, it seems that you and Colin lived the same life as us. We would spend whole Saturday afternoons trying out different recipes with very few disasters. Once Stephen had to stop working we went out to…[Read more]

    Hi Helen

    I came home 2 weeks ago,after nearly 4 months away,enjoyed the travelling and the weather was very good,I nearly gave up in the first month as I found it very lonely,never realised couples in General Don,t speak to single women on their own!! A real eye opener,but after a month I did get use to it and began to realise I liked my own…[Read more]

  • Stephen never had a sweet tooth for sweets, biscuits fruit pies etc. An occasional square of chocolate (I have an “occasional” bar of chocolate very regularly and I scoff the whole bar). His one love was mince pies. From the moment they hit the shops he would stack up. He’d the longest sell by dates he could find and squirrel them away. I haven’t…[Read more]

  • Hi Sandie

    Time to grieve is not something that we decide,it’s not something that you can just decide to do,it comes in so many different forms,to me it’s a bit of an ambush,one minute ok next the tears slip down my cheeks.

    The house to you has been important ,but it’s not your love or your memories,just 4 walls and a roof,your love of your mum…[Read more]

    Hi Helen
    No sorry I don,t have patten,but you could treat the bulge as a finger,get the patten off a glove pattern .

    I am out on my lonesome for Christmas,I don,t want my girls to start thinking who,s going to have mum,they have threatened me with forcing me to have a micro chip,so they can keep track of me..
    Laying ghost to rest!!! Cannot go to…[Read more]

  • Hi Laura

    I am so sorry for your loss,before a consent form is signed the doctor has to explain all the risk involved,you tend to be bombarded with information ,so in the light of this I would say it was explained and because of the amount of info you have to listen too,it’s been said but not regested. I do think information like this should be…[Read more]

    Hi Gill

    Well except for Jean and Fiona we are widows,!!
    And we all know it catches up with us at sometime,we are watching Tom going through his second SCT,and Wendy a SCT from a babies cord,so it must give a lot of hope for people treading in our footsteps.

    Gill may I recommend Way Up to you,it’s not for everyone,and it does have a Facebook way…[Read more]

    Hello Fiona and Helen

    Fiona I find it easier just to let my mind flow,never rewrite anything again,so you get me as I think,plus my terrible grammar and spelling,but it’s the true version, warts and all as they say.
    I do look in to UK Myeloma more mainly because it’s easier to follow,also having faces on there helps,you have beautiful…[Read more]

    I don’t look on here often. My darling husband died on the 11th of September 2012. He was 57. We both knew he had terminal mm but didn’t expect him to go downhill so quickly. On his last visit to the oncologist he was told he had 2 years left hopefully more. He was dead 4 weeks later. His oncologist was genuinely shocked. As were his chemo nurses.…[Read more]

    Hi C

    Thank you! If my previous post help you in any way,I am glad,it’s an awful situation,medically and with the present politics concerning Cancer drugs,they have no understanding of the mental anxiety that patients and family suffer.

    We always tried to lock the myeloma away,in every sense of the word,Slims attitude was why worry about tomorrow…[Read more]

    Hi Jean,

    Strange ,although we are Facebook friends,we keep Myeloma locked away ,its the way it should be!!!, I really enjoy the scrabble as well,I would take more games on with you,but will be heading for France soon!! But I do envy your cruises,it’s so nice to see you are making the most of your time,long may it last.

    Thank you

    I do hope your journey,s are long and the best you can make of them,Liz it’s best to escape the roller coaster as we all know it’s going to pass your way again,and Myeloma should not become normality,but in the end it’s the only thing you know.

    Thank you both again,Stanley,Slim was always proud of me, but he is more likely to come back…[Read more]
