So I go to the hospital thinking that I have another kidney stone. I am told by the doctor "I have good news and bad news. Good news you do not have a kidney stone, bad news you have cancer." Bam life changed for....life. Spent 2 more days in the Hospital being poked and prodded having tests run to see the extent of it. On 3/21/2017 I was diagnosed with stage 3 multiple myeloma, a cancer of the marrow and plasma of the bones. Mine is located in all three sections of the spine. Multiple myeloma causes an excess of abnormal plasma cells (myeloma cells), which form tumors in multiple locations throughout the bone marrow. These tumors begin to overcrowd the bone marrow and prevent normal reproduction of healthy blood cells.
