Myeloma usually comes back. Maintenance is recommended to keep you in remission 😍

I asked my oncologist last week what the requirements to be in remission. He told me there really is no remission with multiple myeloma. He said that people call it remission when their blood levels are where they should be and your m protein is zero but not a true remission. I hear you all talking about your drs saying you are in remission. Am I missing something?

Robert, To stay in Remission researchers and doctors think a low dose of the Myeloma Medication that you were on will help keep you in Remission, called a maintenance dose. Love, Marcia 🌸

All of you remember. God is with you every minute. He made it possible for me to be in remission 6 months ago. Dr's thought I was going to die. Guess He wasn't ready for me yet !!!
