lytic lesions, spine, post transplant

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?
