Brief answer....I doubt about it but your treating doctor should decide about it.
Detailed answer...
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and it is good that your father is quite settled inspite of being  in stage 3B.
B means that there is significant kidney damage which makes the things really bad.
Stage 3 also means that he may be having advanced bone damage along with high levels of calcium and hemoglobin less than 8.5gm/dl
Since your father is in complex and tight situation,his treating doctor should be in the best position to answer regarding the use of IMITINEF MERCILET.
Since your father is satisfactorily settled with present treatment,i think it should not be disturbed,however if your treating doctor thinks that it can still give better result,it can be tried.
I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

Thank you sir for your speedy reply and just for records sir he doesn't have any broken bones in any part of the body or any damage as such, or any shooting pain and his keratin was high when we admitted him to HCG on Dec 3rd ... It was 7 now its 2. 3 as of yesterdays reports :) he has completed his one cycle of chemo and next is due on 27 th DEC also the hemoglobin is 8.3 to 8.7 it varies in this range.. Is it a sign he is doing good sir ? Is there anything you could tell me to keep a check on with regards to his reports on blood or something like that or anything else you could suggest .... Would be of great help I just wann known he is doing better

The biggest problem is the renal failure and I am glad that your father is doing good in this as his creatinine has come down to 2.3 from 7.
Management of multiple myeloma at this stage consists of chemotherapy,taking care of hemoglobin and avoiding any infection complications.
You must completely abide by your doctors instructions and make sure that you don't give anything of your own.
Since kidneys are involved,don't give any pain killer or any herbal preparation of your own.
Carry on with the treatment and best of luck to your father and you.
I pray to the god,that he becomes all right.
In case of any query you are most welcome to ask anytime.
