    Several of you wonderful hubbers have asked me to share my results, and I got them today. They found plasma cells in my bone marrow, which is bad. They numbered under 10%, however, which is good. I don't have enough to be diagnosed with multiple myeloma. My hematologist/oncologist is going to keep a close eye on it.

      I'm glad to hear that so far whatever might have been an issue may not become one. I don't know how high the % needs to be to be considered too much but here's hoping it remains under the radar and that you remain well. My best wishes habee smile

    This is certainly a case where no news is good news. smile Glad you made it through everything with a smile, Habee.

    Did they actually give you a diagnosis?

      MGUS - for now, at least. My monoclonal proteins have been steadily rising, however, so my doc wanted the bone marrow biopsy/aspiration.

        Why did you get your dagnosis in Cyrillic ???   I have no idea what it means - but good luck with whatever it is and I am glad to hear that you are less than the required percentage, whatever it means !

        AND seriously, I am glad it appears to be at least not so bad news - how is your hubby doing now after the recent scare ?

        That sounds like really good news. Most folks with MGUS don't develop any other problems. Phew!

    Well it seems you and your body are giving this thing one hell of a fight! Keep that up and keep those monoclonal proteins down.

    Glad that you got sort of good news.

    Habee, I'm releived to hear this. I know first hand about MM.  Now would be a good time to start heavy on the vitamin C.  If you research it a bit, you'll see that it can prevent cancer.  There are some docs who actually give it intraveneously, but Big Pharma wants to stop it. Keep fighting this....you will get the victory!

    Thank you Habee. At least the good news outweighs the bad. Let your doctor worry about it and you go back to living your life. smile

    I think when doctors do not know what to say they will invent some complicated terminology to cover their ignorance on the subject. Be a happy bee, Habee!
