I have been as educated as possible on this cancer from the moment I learned he was diagnosed with it four years ago. I have attended every seminar, symposium, read medical journals, etc. But with all of that medical information, none of it has prepared me for the emotional part of caregiving for a loved one with a terminal disease. There are many arguments because I "Mother" and protect him from things I know are harmful, and he wants to do what he can do while he can do them.

I agree with ferris. Please do not just wait for the cancer to return. Enjoy each and every day. Get plenty of moderate exercise to keep your bones healthy.

There are a host of supplements that have evidence-based anti-mm benefits. I went into complete remission from mm in '99 and take all the supplements that I link below.

My uncle died of this disease and it was unexpected as he had always been a healthy individual. But one of the things he used to do was consume linseed oil and no, that was NOT any doctor's order!

I wish you luck with your clinical trial. My father in law passed away in 1982 of multiple myeloma. There were no trial drugs or possible remission drugs back then. Two years ago, my son's father in law was diagnosed and is now healthy. So much has happened in the last 25 years to make lives easier and healthier. I wish you luck and will pray for you.

Instead of "waiting" just take each day as it comes and do the things you want to do. Perhaps the clinical trial had a positive outcome and the cancer is gone.
