Autologous Stem Cell Transplant

Hi all,  My husband was diagnosed with a slow-growing multiple myeloma (at the time of his bone marrow biopsy in June, plasma cells in bone marrow were only at .3%). He has been on Revlimid and doing the cycle of Velcade injections. His hematologist is suggesting an autologous stem cell transplant. Has anyone out there had this procedure? Any thoughts, information, etc.? Many thanks.

I had the stem cell transplant and would be glad to answer any questions. It is the standard of care for multiple myeloma after the 1st 6mo induction phase stem cell is next and then maintenance as there is currently no cure.

Many thanks for the reply, Obcodi. My husband's stem cell transplant went well. I'm curious. Is remission at all common in MM? 

How long ago did you have your transplant? I hope it's going well for you.
