Was diagnosed with Multiple myeloma last October,  I'm with my second cicle of chemotherapy and I'm doing very well.
Glad that you’re doing well! Mine is a different story. The doctor suggested that I undergo a bone marrow transplant because it seemed that chemotherapy wouldn’t work for my case. I really don’t wanna have any forms of surgeries. Last time I was being operated, I almost died. It really freaked me out when the doctor brough up this suggestion.
