Infopack for relapsed and/or refractory myeloma patients

This Infopack is for myeloma patients whose myeloma has returned following or during treatment. It is intended to explain why your myeloma relapses, how the relapse will be recognised and the treatments then available. It will also help you come to terms with a relapse or being refractory to treatment.

This Infopack is for myeloma patients, particularly those whose myeloma has returned following or during treatment.

It includes information on:

  • Why does myeloma relapse?
  • How will I/my doctor know I have relapsed?
  • Do I need to start treatment straight away at relapse?
  • Will I have the same treatment I had following my diagnosis?
  • Why does myeloma become refractory to treatment?
  • How many relapses will I have?

The Infopack is intended to answer these and other questions, and help you come to terms with a relapse or being refractory to treatment.
