      What do your Dr's reccommend? I had an auto May, 2006 and an allo Aug, 2006. Hard decision...much prayer and trust. I would do it again though. I was in remission for almost 6 years..May, 2012 m protein present at 0.1 and has stayed at that number. Not on treatment at present. Hopefully, it won't go any higher. Praying and trusting God.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): I had a tumor on my spine and had part of my vertebrae removed. Daily pain 2 years later.
    Then, My arm was sore for a while and I started to lose use of it slowly until one day while I was brushing my teeth, getting ready for work and my arm popped. I got to work and told my boss my arm hurt, he said when I pick up lunch, I should get a sling from CVS. So I get a sling and pick up lunch and back at work I was trying to pick up the sodas when I had overwhelming pain in my back and yelled for help. I drive home and have my brother take me to ER, where they found my arm broken from a tumor. They had to put a rod in my arm.
    I have back and shoulder pain.
