    Deb,

    Obviously I rarely check this forum, but to clarify - maybe you were confusing me with another person who has posted on the thread? I was treated in 2001 and have been in remission since...

    At three months, no. My blood counts were consistently normal before then. I'm not sure if it really indicates a problem or not - I certainly hope not. I wish you the best.

    I think there are so many variables that it's impossible to answer. I had an autologous transplant in early October and I was back at work before Christmas. I had a complication of a blood clot in...

    It sounds to me like your Mom has actually been out of the smoldering stage for some time, for as long as she has had active symptoms. Perhaps you could go with your Mom to an oncologist...

    Hello. I am a MM patient who has been in remission for many years. From what I read, the treatment regimen your Dr. has chosen is the most common one used today. When I was treated in 2001, it was...

    Hi David,

    There is certainly risk of death in any treatment. I believe the center where I was treated did their first 100 autologous transplants without a death. Autologous = you receive your own stem cells,...

    Dear ladyjay91 and LostIrish,
