Bone Marrow Biopsy Results

I was finally able to obtain the results of the biopsy done at Johns Hopkins on July 1: "No evidence of myeloma... There is no evidence of an increase in plasma cells."

So, even though it's never wise to claim that one has "beaten" myeloma -- the fact remains that, for most patients, the eventual development of resistance, followed by disease progression, is more or less inevitable -- this is probably as close as I can get to overcoming this disease, and should celebrate it as such. I'll breathe that much easier, though, if I get the same results for the 12-month evaluation, which will happen around the beginning of next year.
