Mel, There are several things they look at. Your doctor will want to do a bone marrow biopsy to see what % your Myeloma cells are at. They need t9 be around 10 % before they can harvest for @ stem cell. Love, Marcia 🌸

Thank you for the information. I had 3 bone marrow biopsies but never learned the results, I'll be sure to ask my oncologist next week. I guess its a good thing not to be a candidate! I am sometimes an "awfulizer" so I guessed it was because I was too far gone.
