      I started a blog shortly after I was diagnosed ~ 3.5 years ago.... http://ndmyeloma.healthblogs.org/ ....it is nothing great but I tried to chronicle my experiences - for posterity! Since then I have decided that posterity will have to wait and that MM has already taken way too much of my time. I have since stopped blogging for a couple of reasons, one being hte amount of spam and the other being that I don't have the time to devote to it... plus I have read other blogs that seem to be so self-serving that I did not want to go there!

      Feel free to chat me some time or send an email, I can share my experiences if you like. Everyone is so different except that we (MM) are so much a like - if that makes sense! You have plenty of people out here that you can turn to for support and shared experiences.

      I was diagnosed in november 2005. I was only on medication for 4 months before I had an autologus stem cell transplant. Then in August of 2006, I had an allogeneic transplant with my sister as my donor. I have been in complete remission until May of 2012. The m protein was present at 0.1. I am getting tested frequently and we are watching closely. At this time, I am on no treatment. I live in SC but I go to MD Anderson in Houston for my treatment. If you would like to talk, I will be glad to call you if you leave me your number. Please know that there are many treatment options out there, so please don't lose hope.

      Katrina: I am sure this limbo state is very agonizing. I would ask my physician how long before a bone marrow biopsy can be done. Also, ask what he or she thinks of your present state from the other tests being done--M spike, FISH assays, skeletal surveys, etc. I was in a "watch and wait" period for four years before my numbers escalated to the point that I needed to have treatment. It was even possible that I could have stayed in that watchful state forever and never required treatment. I guess my real message is to ask more questions about your present state. My best wishes.

    Has anyone had both endometrial cancer and multiple myleloma or two other kinds of cancer?

      Are you talking about having two types at the same time? I had Hodgkins twice, 24 years ago, then squamous cell carcinoma 4 years ago.

      Hope your doing well, welcome to the site!
