I am heartbroken.  My father went through nasal cancer in 2013. I became a member of this site to get advice, tips, ideas on how to help my father through all of this. 

My dad recently was found to have a tumor on his forehead that went through to the other side of skull (no brain or organ involvement). After the biopsy, they did a pet scan and diagnosed my dad with multiple myeloma. 

Areas that have affected my dad; front skull, back skull, wrists, right arm, left hip, and one vertebrae. We do not know the exact extent of damage, but the doc thinks that this is highly treatable with chemo pills and shots. My dad cannot more than likely do a stem cell transplant...

I'm just so scared for him. I hate seeing ppl suffer. I've tried to read up on myeloma online, but there's so much conflicted information.

I've read through some of this board and will continue, but can anyone provide some positive feedback or information to help me understand what my dad is gonna go through. I know everyone is different.  He is 68 and pretty active. 

I appreciate any feedback or help. I love my dad so much and want to help any way I can!

My wife is 67, and has been living with multiple myeloma for 5 years. It was diagnosed late and was aggressive, and damaged her back, but the treatments, including one stem cell transplant, have put her in remission.
