Update on my condition – Multiple Myeloma

Leave a comment

Its been a while since I updated my status wrt Multiple Myeloma. Got the BMA, Electrophoresis and Microglobulin tests done about 10 days ago. The samples are  sent to a lab in Mumbai and it takes 7-10 days for the results to be declared.

Went to the counter in the hospital yesterday, where the Reports are to be collected. The person at the counter took almost half an hour to trace my reports. I was already tense for the last 10 days and the tension was mounting. The moment my Reports were found and handed to us , I quickly grabbed the papers and began scanning for the words ‘M Spike’ or ‘M Band’ . Found the words ‘No M Band is seen’ and heaved a sigh of relief. Quickly thanked the Almighty and then proceeded to meet my Oncologist. He took some time to read all the statistics on my reports and exclaimed ‘Wonderful !!” . Told me to meet after 3 months with my CBP,LFT and RFT reports .

What a relief !!

It’s been 5 years since I underwent an Autologous Stem Cell Transplant.

I sent a msg to my Ayurvedic doctor while we (Hubby and Dad) sat in the hospital canteen.

He was happy and congratulated me .He too had been eagerly waiting for my results.

I am off chemo since last 10 months and taking Ayurvedic medication for the last one and half years. All the credit goes to Dr Nitin for treating me and following up closely on my progress. While he feels that my faith in Ayurveda and following the protocol religiously is helping me. Yes ,ultimately it has to work both ways along with God’s grace  :))
