I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in April 2012 from an irregularity with a blood test. In October 2012 I had my first symptom with a fracture in my T5. I then started on a clinical trial with prednisone , velcade oral chemotherapy. I had a successful transplant in February 2013 and it has taken me a full year to recover and to feel like my old self.
I am in complete remission and hope it will last for a long time. I couldn’t have gone through this without my family support, I’m lucky.
