My husband has Multiple Myeloma (in remission) and Myelodysplastic Syndrome which he is under going current treatment for. He has had 8 bone marrow biopsies. 4 of them since December 2019. He has a little tenderness almost like a bruise for a couple days and then he is fine. I'm a tittle confused as to why you would bank stem cells if you do not have any disease. Do you have a family history of blood cancer? Hopefully you get relief soon.

The idea was that you can bank your stem cells while you are healthy. I didn't have any history of blood cancer or anything but I know that they are studying stem cells and I wanted to bank them in case I got covid or something. Prior to the procedure, I was healthy and able to run bike and swim every day with no pain.

Now, after the procedure, I'm in chronic pain from the procedure itself. I haven't been able to think, walk, exercise really in the past 2 months, and am living with constant fear that I'll never be able to walk, run or bike without pain.

I know that everyone on this forum has had worse experiences than this so I feel terrible that this procedure has defeated me.
