    Hello and welcome, we are happy to have you with us. Please feel free to join in the conversations. Here is a link to our cancer dx page for your type of cancer. Take a look at it to get you started on some information. You will notice at the bottom of that page 4 of our active users who have had that journey already, you may wish to contact them for their experience and wisdom. Also, I encourage you to go to the questions page now by clicking on the questions tab at the top of the page and post what is the most pressing issue you have right now. This will introduce you to the community and get you started with the help you need right now.

    There are also subtypes listed on this page to narrow down the type of cancer to match your dx. Also, if you can take a few minutes and fill in some details of your journey so far, it will help others as they try to answer questions for you, it also helps others as they search through the database to find someone like themselves. Confirming your email will allow you to receive updates and notices from the site when someone answers your questions or writes on your wall.

    Thanks for being with us and let me know if I can help you find any information on the site.

    Almost 3 years since my SCT and I am doing well. Other than a few minor side effects from Revlimid, I feel “normal”.

    DocDeb shared an experience

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I was given Velcade as treatment and told that the side effects would be minimal. They were not. I was sick 5 days out of 7. I was also given Dexamethasone and told that I would be sick and gain weight. I did not. I’d like to share and remind others thT everybody is different. There is no one size fits all.

    Procedure or Surgery (stem cell transplant): I had a text book perfect Stem Cell Transplant. It went much better than I anticipated. I would like to talk to others about the experience to help relieve some of their anxiety.
