My mother is suffering from multiple myeloma. She is having m-protein level 4.2 (serum) and plasma cell 80% (as said by doctor. This was the initial findings and them they started chemotherapy with drugs Borterozomib (bortero, clcycloxan and Dexona. She also had a great pain earlier but now she is somewhat relaxed from pain. Earlier she was not able to even take sides while on bed but now pain occur only when she stand up or sit. She was diagnosed with Radiotherapy also before Chemotherapy. We have queries like- 1) Is the medication provided is right and sufficient? 2) How long chemo will run? N how many doses of these combination of Drugs will be given Approx? 3) What about the bones which got damaged. Can't they be made normal like they were earlier by any possible means like surgery and vertebroplasty etc? 4) How we will know that condition is getting better? Is there any possible mean to know that for self satisfaction? 5) Diet that should be taken during medication?

Line of treatment is right, treatment until remission, as suggested by blood test and marrow, zolendronic acid does help to streamer the bone. Disease it’s treatable, not curable.
