Not much hope

Loss mum in August last year, now less then less than a year after, 2 weeks in hospital. I now been diagnosed with Myloma Cancer.

I am so very sorry. You are not long into grieving to be hit with such news. Cancer is a scrouge on humanity now. She would want you to take care of yourself the best you can. :heartpulse:

If and when you are able, if at all, consider support groups for grief and cancer.

I need that, thank you. I posted hoping I might find someone with the same disease. It’s early days for me as I not started the treatment as of yet. So searching for answers at the moment.

Hello @Keith68,

I’m so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. If you’d like to talk to others who have myeloma, Myeloma UK have support groups across the UK. You can find out more by visiting their website. You might be interested in their peer buddy service, which connects you to another person with myeloma.

They also have a free infoline on 0800 980 3332 (UK) or 1800 937 773 (Ireland).

The Myeloma Infoline is available Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm (closed weekends and some public holidays).

I hope this information is helpful. The community is here for you, too.

Take care,
Seaneen

Hi @Keith68
We have spoken to each other in the past, I’ve not been on for a while as I’ve withdrawn into myself lately.
Anyway I’d just like to send you my best wishes and hope everything goes well in your recovery 🩵

Hi Pixie

Life’s a battle that’s for sure and it doesn’t let up. 1 challenge after another, I had to put mum on hold for a little as I been in hospital since you was last on here. I been diagnosed with Myaloma Cancer which is blood cancer. It’s treatable but it will keep me busy with hospital runs and Chemo sessions. So I have to concentrate on that a lot at the moment. But I still think about mum even more so.
