Hi there.. my mother was diagnosed with myloma in november 06.. Today she had her first visit to the specialist.... She was told that she has NOT got multiple myloma but MGUS.. Can you imagine what we have been through since nov last year.. I am a single child of 39 who was brought up single handedly by my amazing mother.. I wasn,t the perfect child i thought i was.... I am so confused with the whole situation...
I should be jumping around with joy but feel angry and hurt because of how i have been feeling and also things that have happened due to the misdiagnosis,,, To say that at some point i even thought if only briefly of a carpark and the quick way down....
How can doctors be allowed to tell someone they have cancer.. when they obviously had not conducted the necessary tests..
Anyway to say a little word to you... Think positively... my mother is chuffed to bits to have MGUS.. Research says most people live a happy unaffected life with occasional checks to monitor progression.
Also incase i came across as a mummy,s boy...She played the dad role very well.. many a beating all deserved i expect... She retired last month at the age of 65 having worked for the police nearly 30 years..
She has and will cope with all this far better than myself.. Anyway i,m waffling now... Take care , think only great positive thoughts and we,ll all get through somehow....
kind regards .. Ross Humphrey
And i think i cheered her up when i got engaged christmas eve..xx
