  • Hi Roz

    Yes she is, and i have found her incredible to be honest, dont know how i would have got thro this without her! She goes beyond her job specification, she in my opinion is the best one to speak to, she gives straight forward answers, and thats what i like, good luck with thursday keep us posted.

  • Hi donna

    I have found this site a great help, glad you have spoken to the nurses and are getting that second opinion, please let me know how you get on.

    Mum just getting over pheumonia but is doing well thanks.

  • Hi donna

    I think it is a good idea to get a second opinion at this stage, I know there are other drugs that can be used especially if he has had SCT, think bendamustine is one of them, speak to the specialist nurse here at myeloma uk, she should be able to help you with information.

    I am here anytime you want to talk, you can email me if you…[Read more]

  • Hi donna

    what treatments has your dad already had? I am really sorry that you have been told there is no more that they can do. He sounds like they are still actively treating any problems, so why nothing else?
