Shock to the sysyem

Thought I had bad sciatica and had to cancel my trip to Asia to go for urgent appointment at the hospital.
After various blood tests mri and cat scat i have been diagnosed with myeloma. It's a form of blood cancer that eats holes in your bones and causes them to become weak and exposing nerves. The destruction from this also carries the calcium particles from your bones to your kidneys which blocks the filtration of the kidneys which ends up with renal failure if not treated.
So have a bone marrow extraction on Tuesday that is sent away to be analysed and will give them an idea of the severity of my illness and the way for treatment. I may be choosen to go on medical trials and have my own personal plan rather than one hat fits all approach.
Glad I cancelled my trip to Asia as I can't start to imagine the complications if I had arrived in China with the pain I get atm.
The specialist said its treatable but not curable and I have a long road ahead.
Medically retired on Friday as unable to now work.

Also a word of warning. I was going to go to a chiropractor the week before but changed my mind. The specialist said this could have done futher damage to my vertebra by actually snapping the bone and causing life threatening issues.
Don't want a pity party but will chart my progress

I'm really sorry to read this, thank goodness you cancelled.

I will certainly be following your journey on here, there are some amazing new treatments coming through now

Good luck with the bone marrow extraction, it's a weird experience but not as painful as I was expecting and it does give a very clear picture of exactly what's going on.

Sending you best wishes. X

Gosh what a shock and it sounds like a long road ahead, one foot in front of the other, sometimes it's all you can do and it is enough.
