B-12 Update
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

Just to share I’ve been taking chewable B-12 5000 mcg for ten days and honestly feel I have more energy. I’ll comment back at 30 days. If you do try let me know what your experience is. And please check with your doctor before taking. Certainly don’t want it to interfere with your treatment meds. Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸

Can Anyone Share What Type (if Any) Of Orthopedic Procedures You Had Treating Bone Damage Acquired Due To MM.
A MyMyelomaTeam Member asked a question 💭

My husband’s biggest problem that interferes with everyday life is low back pain. He has had multiple vertebrae and rib fractures, which have all healed. He had one Kyphoplasty early on before he was actually diagnosed with MM, which actually led to MM diagnose. Have tried diagnostic facet injections without any success. Now in acupuncture. Have been on multiple opiods which provide some relief, but have their own set of issues.
