    Hypercalcemia

    Hello Folks,
    I'm new to this forum and appreciate your feedback. After 14 years of myeloma, we seem to be heading into a swift downhill. Bob has had high blood calcium for two -three weeks and I'm just wondering how high it can go without devastating results. He's had three bisphosphonate treatments over the course of the last three weeks. Calcium has hovered around 12.5 but now seems like he's having lots of severe bone pain and likely bone deterioration. Have any of you experienced hypercalcemia for any length of time?
    Thanks.

    Hi - my brother is currently in the hospital due to hypercalcemia. His level was 15 and it was affecting his kidney function. They have changed his chemo and the calcium level is coming down.
