The latest news on cancer is... there is none.
Bone marrow biopsy -- NONE.
Blood test -- NONE.
The doctor declared me cancer free. They used the latest equipment available, and could not find even the smallest amount of cancerous material.
There is a 70% chance that it will come back in the future. The idea now is to treat myeloma like a chronic condition. Just like diabetes or high blood pressure, or even high cholesterol, I will be treating the cancer with a low dose of chemo (thalidomide) until it doesn't work anymore.
Hopefully, that will be a few years from now.
Until then, I think I will go to Disneyland!
