Relapsed/Refractory Myeloma Chapter

Event Description

With differing opinions in the specialist field about multiple myeloma maintenance therapy, it's hard to make educated decisions as a patient about whether or not it's right for you. Questions to consider include:

  • Is maintenance therapy right for me?
  • How long do I expect to be on maintenance therapy?
  • What will the side effects be like?
  • Should I get a second opinion? 

Multiple Myeloma Specialist Dr. Ghulam (Manni) Mohyuddin joins us to discuss this important topic.
