Hi..I don't where to begin except that I have been crying for 2 days and feel so alone..For the past year my husband has had test after test for undiagnosed vertigo..Some funky bloodwork led to further tests and scary initial discoveries..The most worrisome have been an M spike in the serum. From what I gather it is on the lower end with the Monoclonal IgM Monoclonal Kappa at0.14 g/dl, IgG Kappa at 0.65 g/dl..The doctor also mentioned light chains in the urine..Granted I have not much science background so what I learned 30 years ago in biology about this stuff is very confusing and overwhelming..He was just scheduled for a fatty biopsy, a bone scan and bone marrow test...The doctor did not say anything and said to just wait..we don't go back until November 1 after he has had all the tests.
I have two girls 20/16 and myself I have spinal/chronic pain issues from a serious accident..We both are working full time and I am very scared about the possible diagnosis plus the fact that his mother died 14 years ago from MM..
I know he could possibly have the MGUS or even a lower stage if it is MM..He is only 54..luckily he has not had abnormal levels of calcium, hct,hmg, BUN, Creatine..
I feel so lost and am struggling to remain positive and strong which i must for my kids..this waiting is the hardest and given my anxiety right now I can't sleep or concentrate.
I am just looking for a friend or someone who is going through this or something similar.thanks for listening...Amy
