Ribbon Color: Burgundy: Multiple Myeloma
Most people who are diagnosed with multiple myeloma often have symptoms of bone pain or extreme pain in their
joints, but I had none of that. The only symptom I had was extreme exhaustion that hit me at the end of the
Thursday before Mother’s Day in 2013. As I was driving home, I became so tired I considered pulling over. I made it
home, called my husband and sat on the couch. He came home to find me asleep on the couch and looking flushed.
He took my temperature, and we discovered it was 103.2 degrees. I didn’t want to go to the doctor, but I was very
disoriented because of the fever. After I forced my husband to wait a half hour, thinking the fever would go down,
he convinced me to go to the ER, where they admitted me.
By Saturday, the medications had started to kick in and I remember feeling better. But the doctors had received the
results of my blood tests, and they showed I had an M spike. I didn’t know what that meant. After being in the
hospital for four days, I was released. I saw my primary care physician two weeks later, and she had more blood
work done. When she received the results, she referred me to a hematologist. My husband took me to the
appointment. We were expecting to pull up in front of a doctor’s office, but became totally terrified when the
building said it was a cancer center. Until that point, no one had ever said I had cancer. I had no clue that what I had
was a type of cancer. I was completely overwhelmed.
My oncology/hematology doctor ran a new battery of tests, including X-rays, scans and more blood tests. The
diagnosis was a severe case of multiple myeloma, but they said they caught it early. If I had not had pneumonia, the
multiple myeloma could have gone on for months or years without being discovered or treated. The doctor
recommended I have a stem cell transplant. I had four rounds of chemotherapy along with a steroid, which caused
some sleeplessness and the jitters, in the fall of 2013. In November, they collected my stem cells on the first day,
gave me a high-dose chemotherapy drug on the second day and I had a stem cell transplant of my own stem cells
on November 13. The high-dose chemotherapy did cause me to lose my hair, which I had been warned about. The
impact of that didn’t hit me as hard as I thought it would. I figured, “It is just hair. It’ll grow back.” It was a small
price to pay.
My husband and sister took care of me right after my stem cell transplant for 30 days. My daughter and
granddaughters couldn't come around me for fear of infections, but we would do Facetime. I had to take the rest of
the school year off. Through the recovery, I had fatigue, weakness, joint pain, constipation and neuropathy in my
feet and fingers. At my 100-day checkup after the transplant, the doctors told me I was in complete stringent
remission. To prepare for my return to work, I had to get my strength back because the transplant and the multiple
myeloma take your strength away. I started walking and took a 12-week class at my local YMCA that was designed
to help cancer survivors get their strength back. I was able to return to my job in August 2014, thanks to the YMCA
and my principal who had been using substitutes in my absence.
This experience taught me the importance of being your own advocate. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctors and
other health care team members all the questions you need answered. Don’t be afraid to interrupt them if you
don’t understand. You are your own best advocate!
Seek out support. I found a multiple myeloma support group in my area, and I’ve found the information they
provide so valuable. I also joined an online support group, called Smart Patients , which is mediated by
the International Myeloma Foundation . Always check any research you find with your doctor. As a teacher, I know
what sources are more reputable than others online, but other people may not. So be careful. And remember,
knowledge is power.- Lou Sears
