    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma stage 3 on Nov 8th 2018 I have 70 percent in my bone marrow and the doctor started me on an aggressive cocktail of Velcade. I will be having a stem cell transplant which the Doctor feels will be in 6 months. I have tumors on my skull and Im missing a 17 chromosome which Ive been told means I will never have a complete remission because the cancer will continue to come back. It's been quite a journey and Im still trying to figure out what life has in store for me.

      Hi
      My name is Lynne and I was diagnosed with MM in August of 2011. My oncologist didn’t tell me much about my status but I knew I had tumors on my spine with 5 compression fractures. I was also told I had the same chromosome which meant I wouldn’t ever go in to complete remission. I had about 6 months of velcade/steroid treatment. I reached a plateau and my oncologist and the stem cell dr decided to add Revlamid to the velcade to get my numbers down to where they could do the stem cell transplant. 3 months later I had the SCT. I started on Revlamid maintenance 3 months later and have been as close to remission as I can be. If I didn’t have constant pain from the compression fractures I would be pretty good. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
