    Hi Shell,
    Welcome to the forum although sorry for the reason you had to post. I have myeloma and would be very happy to answer any questions you might have about SCT’s in that context. The SCT process can be long and tough, but the medical teams are getting better at them all the time, and SCT’s are known to give good periods of time in remission, so I have always considered it was worth the short term pain for hopefully the long term gain.
    There is loads of support on this forum, so please keep posting as you go through the process - we are all here to help.
    All the best,

    Hi shell,
    I'm in the actually same position as you as my husband is due a bone marrow transplant soon. It's really frightening to feel your loved one has to have a transplant, but my advice is you need support yourself, try ringing the support groups as you need to look after yourself too, it looks like we are going to go through this journey at the same time. My heart ❤️ really goes out to you and wish you and your partner well, please keep me informed of how things are going and people are really supportive on this forum
    Lots of love
