Five years ago today, my first detailed blood test for Myeloma

I remember going to the hematologist, who had told me that I could have MGUS or Myeloma but that it was very unlikely that somebody my age would have the latter.

He told me I needed to have a bone marrow biopsy done, and I didn't want to do it that day.  It was a Friday, and I scheduled it for Monday.  Little did I know that would be the last weekend that I didn't worry about this stuff.   How silly that seems -- to have not worried!  But at the time, both my primary care doctor and this hematologist downplayed the likelihood that I had Myeloma, and downplayed its severity.  No need to be alarmist, I suppose...
