I just found this board and I was reading some of the MM page. My stepfather has had Multiple Myeloma for 6 years. When he was first diagnosed he was given less than 6 months to live.
He tried several different chemo's and Velcade is what worked for him the best. It's lying dormant now and has for about 2 years.
However, last week he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. We don't know what stage yet, as his biopsy is being scheduled. But its a difficult thing at the moment. I can explain if I need too.
Do any of you know of anyone else who went through this as well?
His tumor is 4.4 cm and is squeezing the tube to the liver causing him to be jaundiced. He has lost a lot of weight from not being able to eat. The Dr.s do not think it is related to the MM or because of it.
But I'm looking for someone to talk and be a support with my mom and stepdad.
Any information would be appreciated.
