Are bone lesions curable?

2 years ago I was diagnosed with smouldering myeloma due to blood work and bone lesions discovered on the skeletal survey. The latest skeletal survey does not show bone lesions. Do they typically go away or is it more likely that xrays have been misread either initial or current?

Hi
Hope this message finds you in good health.
I have gone through your complaints and understand your concern.
I generally see many cases like this at my clinic.
many bony lesions have a good prognosis and with proper treatment,eventually fade away.
the other category is of the lesions that tend to remain or grow up in size.
get another scan at a different centre to find out the difference.
You should eventually get back to normal in coming few days.Nothing to worry about.     
I hope your question has been answered.
If you have any follow-up queries,feel free to consult me anytime.
Thanks,Take care,God bless.
