Dear Drvaidya,
Sorry no one has responded to your questions, could be the subject is not as familiar to some people here as the other stuff.

I have some websites you can go to, that will explain what is going on.  Your multiple myeloma apparently originated in the marrow of your spine and the disease is breaking your bones down, which is making it hard for you to move around, so the treatment you're receiving is supposed to slow its progression.  Yes, health care and medications are expensive, but you can try to get assistance through various government programs, perhaps your county health clinic can begin to help guide you through all this.

On this first website I'm giving you, read the article there, and then notice at the very bottom of it, it says, "Read more at..." and it gives you another link.  So, go to that website, too, because it has a bunch more info on your condition.  Here is the original website you should read:

www.mayoclinic.org/multiple-myeloma/


I really hope you get the answers you need and the support, too, because you have been through a lot and life is rather tough for you these days, but you are not alone, as the above websites will tell you, and I hope you get to feeling better soon.
