My mom was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in September 2014. She is 64, very active and stubborn. Avoided going to the docs for about a year with severe back and rib pain. My father and her are very private. It is very hard for me to be involved. Mom is very afraid of catching anything and has shut herself off. She is on so many pain pills and medications, valcade injections. Once a week steroids, revlamide and some anti depressants. Its like she isn't even there anymore. She is suffering with explosive and constant diarrhea. I guess I need to hear from someone that this is normal? I am going to her next doc apt. But they really don't want me there.
