Hello

I have studied your case,
Multiple myeloma has poor prognosis.
Associated co-morbidities make it more critical.
Newer medications treat multiple myeloma ,but have there own side effects

Take calcium and vit D as osteoporosis is common in multiple myeloma.
To combat with chemotherapy you need to maintain high protein diet and fresh fruits and herbs
