Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

Hi I had a transplant in June. Things seem to be coming well, I'm getting my strength and stamina back, and my blood numbers are mostly normal (platlets, hemoglobin etc.) I recently had a ct scan when I got sick because they were worried about blood clot in my lung. Everything was ok, but the scan noted numerous lytic lesion in my spine the largest at T8. I have recently noticed back pain in my spine which I guess is from the lesions. I am scheduled for a pamidronate drip in a few weeks,and will be back on monthly padidronate drips. I feel bummed out about this because I figue it means I have active myeloma post transplant. My M spike as I noted in my othe thread is 6 or .6

were the lesions there prior to the transplant? Have you had a BMB since the transplant? Any other symptoms? ( calcium level, renal problems, anemia). Most patients who have a transplant will have the myeloma return, but 4 months is a little soon. What does your doc say?
