My mother-in-law was diagnosed of MM almost 8 months ago. This was stage-1 MM. She has been given 6 cycles of Chemotherapy (based on Thaldex regime). She had developed DVT due to chemo port being inserted and that caused her a lot of pain. Apart from this one incident; the cycles have been successful with the usual side-effects.
My question is "Is she a suitable candidate to go for Stem Cell Replacement? and if she goes for the replacement what are the risks and does the disease get cured or prolonged? What is the life expectancy after the SS replacement"
