Dad had his stem cell transplant March 2008. It was a success, their was no trace of myeloma in his bloods for around 18 months. Although he was still in a lot of pain everyday and was taking morphine to control the back pain.n. He is a stubborn old man and still went to work full time, but he says this helps him and I suppose he is right, cancer does not stop you from living!
Leading up to this he had various procedures to repair some of the damage caused to his collapsed verterbra in his spine.
