Recently Diagnosed or Relapsed? Stop Looking For a Miracle Cure, and Use Evidence-Based Therapies To Enhance Your Treatment and Prolong Your Remission

Multiple Myeloma an incurable disease, but I have spent the last 25 years in remission using a blend of conventional oncology and evidence-based nutrition, supplementation, and lifestyle therapies from peer-reviewed studies that your oncologist probably hasn't told you about.

Complete Remission After Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplant for Multiple Myeloma

My latest blood work finally shows normal free light chain levels (they have been below normal) and ratio. No M-spike. I am told that I am in complete remission (CR) from my multiple myeloma.

Hi David, I am almost 3 years post allogeneic transplant (matched sibling) for 17 del IgA kappa myeloma, stage IIA, no bone lesions, only anemia. I have had mild GI GVHD (on sirolimus for that) and I have slowly added back in my supplements as the GVHD is resolving.

I take BCM95 curcumin, green tea, resveratrol,  fish oil, grape seed extract, vit.K2, calcium & magnesium, vitamin D3 and boswellin for GI (I have history of IBS). I was taking Wobenzym N early on and I may add it back in. The enzymes were upsetting my stomach. The green tea and resveratrol I just added back in this week. I noticed that the curcumin and resveratrol lowered my siromilus levels, so I backed off after transplant.

My latest blood work finally shows normal free light chain levels (they have been below normal) and ratio. No M-spike. I am told that I am in complete remission (CR) post allogeneic transplant. My concern is trace amounts of IgM and lambda paraproteins now showing up in my blood. I had IgA kappa myeloma. My oncologist doesn’t have an explanation and my allo transplant doctor thinks it is a temporary anomaly, it has shown up once in October blood work and again a week ago. Have you ever heard of this in other patients? My oncologist suggested going back on Revlimid but my transplant doctor thinks it is unnecessary. He said that if I was developing another form of myeloma it would be IgG or IgE, it would not likely be IgM.

Hi Susan-

Let me begin this reply by saying that I am impressed with your therapy. An allogeneic transplant for MM is relatively rare. It seems as though your all transplant went very well. Congrats.
I take many of the same supplements that you take. I have no experience with IBS. Or GVHD. Again, you are doing well. Regarding your question about trace amounts of IgM in you blood while in CR, I have heard anecdotal  accounts of trace paraproteins but nothing specific.
My thinking is that you are going above and beyond to manage your MM, both conventionally and non-conventionally, and you will have to be satisfied with that. I am more cynical about MM oncology than you are I think. I believe you know more about your situation than your onc.s do at this point.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Keep in touch,
David Emerson
