Here is information on symptoms and causes, tests to diagnose myeloma, treatment including chemotherapy, biological therapy – Velcade (bortezomib) and Revlimid (lenalidomide), stem cell transplant (intensive treatment), and current research. Living with myeloma includes coping with your diagnosis and recovering after intensive treatment.
