My father 74, was diagnosed with MM last Spring of '03. The Oncologist were hopeful that they can put my dads cancer in remission. Extensive high dose of cancer treatment, then bone marrow transplant to put his cancer in remission. He was on strong full dose of chemo, plus Decadron. Last July, he suffered a seizure, possible stroke, the doctors can't fully confirmed that he had a stroke. Now, his current oncologist won't even touch the subject matter of bone marrow transplant as discussed earlier, in fear of my dad possibly having another seizure/stroke. He's a normal functioning man, organs, etc., othen than the fact that he has a MM, and was told that he needs to be taking Decadron for the rest of his life. I'm seeking 2nd opinion for his treatment. Is there anyone out there who has had similar experience as my dad? But, did complete bone marrow transplant?
