I had an auto stem cell transplant about a year

I had an auto stem cell transplant about a year ago. I just had a pet scan and the only lymph nodes that had no cancer to begin with now show activity. They are behind my lungs. To hard to biopsy. Is it possible that the pet scan can be wrong. My bone marrow and blood
tests were negative.

my father has multiple myeloma cancer and is on his 2nd chemo cycle before a donor transplant and has decided to quit cold turkey, the transplant is a haploid and he has already had this for now 3 years, undergoing 2 previous auto stem cell transplants, will discontinuing chemo make him ineligible to do the haploid transplant? His cancer has been extremly aggressive on his back bones and hips. Any advise about his current decision?

My brother has had 2 stem cell transplants for multiple myleoma. I s now off chemo and many medications. In the last year he developed a skin rash-chronic-that made his skin peel off in flakes and the itching was terrible alsmost uncontrollable!! Looks like psorasis(of which I have). My question is since he has been off most meds, and has now become very weak and fatigued and we just discovered that he has been taking sweeteners , asparatame, splenda, so stopped cold turkey yesterday. He developed diabetes in the last 8 months and they say he has hyperthroidism. Your thoughtrs would be much appreciated. He thinks he is dying. I think it is caused possibly by all the other ingested bad chemicals???
