“Fatigue can be very difficult to fix — but having said that, one of the things we do when we're assessing folks with blood cancer is try to see if there are, in fact, reversible causes of fatigue.”
Dr. Matt Kalaycio shared this important insight during MyMyelomaTeam’s latest Q&A session, when members of the myeloma community had a chance to learn more about managing and treating blood cancers.
Dr. Kalaycio joined MyMyelomaTeam’s Heather Lapidus Glassner to answer questions on how to manage fatigue, whether cardiac conditions can occur alongside blood cancers, and how someone would know whether they’re a candidate for a stem cell transplant.
