Hello and welcome to MedHelp's forums. We are glad you are here and appreciate your question. When you have a report from a test you have taken, follow up should always occur with your doctor to understand the results. This appears to be a snippet of what your report said. We would hate to misinterpret that for you. So, please do speak to your doctor and tell us what they say. Then we will what to try to help you with next.
The numbers are important. For example, free light chains are antibodies found in urine but the number of them is what tells the story of what is going on and used to help diagnose. Are they suspecting myeloma.

That's a little confusing. Who ordered the lab work done? This is normal to have in a protein test but it is the number that provides insight. This sounds like you may be just seeing it in a report but not that it was flagged to be checked or out of the ordinary, correct?
This situation is best to be supervised by the doctor that did the test. I would not try to do more tests than they recommend. You are saying you now have kidney stones again diagnosed? Always feel free to ask these same questions of the doctor at the hospital that you were working with.
I am very familiar with those terms, I was diagnosed with MGUS, Monoclonalgammopathy of Undetermined Significance, which they tell me has now progressed to Smoldering Myeloma. I keep telling my oncologist that I am not going to progress further, and he keeps telling me is a matter of when, not if. I also have Osteoporosis at age 59, so I guess my advise would be to keep in contact with oncologist and rheumatologist, because they are doctors of internal medicine, and have more knowledge in these directions.
