I was diagnosed in April. I have had a rod placed in my right Humerus. I have had a treatment with Zometa but no treatments for the myeloma. I have been refered for Stem cell transplant at University of MD.
Could anyone give me any insight into the transplant?

My cousin has had cancer 4 different times and the last time she went through stem cell placement. From what I understand of the process is that they take stems cells from you somehow. During the replacement I think it's done via a IV. I really don't know much about the procedure really other than that.
