Hello everyone I am geomar and I am new to this site

I was just wondering if anyone has multiple myeloma I have just been diagnosed and I am in complete shock. It was discovered in a blood test I have had a bone marrow biopsy and a CT scan and I am waiting now to hear what treatment I will be offered. 

  • Welcome to the Cancer Chat forum Geomar although I'm sorry to hear you've been diagnosed with multiple myeloma.

    A cancer diagnosis, especially one that has come out of the blue, will naturally bring up a whole host of thoughts and emotions but I'm glad you've joined us as so many of our members have been in this position, so you are not alone, and hopefully you will receive some support and advice from them soon.

    We do have some information about multiple myeloma on our website but if you have any questions, or feel it may help just to talk things through with someone, then do give our cancer nurses a call. They're available on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m and will do all that they can to help.

    You may also be able to get further information and advice from Myeloma UK.

    We're thinking of you Geomar and hope you won't have to wait too long to find out what happens next.

    Kind regards,

    Steph, Cancer Chat Moderator

  • Thank you Steph for the lovely welcome and also for answering my post. I am waiting for a skin biopsy and then to see the doctor and hopefully I will hear then what treatment I am to receive. It is 5 weeks now from I heard the terrible news and my mind is all over the place but I am just taking one day at a time. God Bless  geomar
