I am wishing I was NOT having to join this group; however, I have begun to feel like a broken record to my husband and brother. My dad was diagnosed with Stage 3 MM. We learned of his hypercalcemia in November, when the doctor told my dad it was multiple myeloma, he neglected to inform dad it was cancer (I had to tell him that) we finally saw an oncologist in February, and received all of the test results March 2. We were told he had sustained Chronic pressure fracture of inferior endplate of T12. Mild chronic fracture T11. No destructive lesions seen in the lumbar spine. We were also told he also had lesions on C 1-4. And a 6mm lesion within his humerus in his left arm. We had an appointment to have radiation on the 9th; however, severe abdominal pain caused us to take him to the emergency room, where they found gallstones, which were not infected, so they sent him home. We were back in ER the next night with same issue. We have surgery scheduled for Monday morning to remove the gallbladder; however, I just received his hospital patient portal access. He also has, according to the doctor's documents, hiatal hernia, nodules in adrenal glands, kidney cysts, lesions found in pelvic bone, calcified granulomas within spleen, hila and right lower lobe of lung. The doctor stated we were not going to use chemotherapy, however, would use RVD therapy. (isnt Velcade chemo?)
