This short workbook is designed to help patients equip themselves with the best information about myeloma. Starting with a simple overview of the biology of the disease, it will help patients to understand the type of myeloma that they have, the remitting-relapsing nature of the disease, and the signs and symptoms they are likely to experience. It takes patients through the initial treatment options and their side effects, what to expect if they have stem cell transplantation, and how they will be treated when their symptoms return. The final sections will help patients understand the supportive care options available, and provide an insight into the latest myeloma research, which is progressing on many fronts. (Publishers)
