How frequently should a Multiple Myeloma patient receive urine tests?
My father is in his 1st round of chemo (VRD) for Multiple Myeloma. He is a Mayo Patient and a hopeful SCT patient in Nov. at Mayo, Rochester. However, he is doing his VRD treatment with a hematology group elsewhere near home. They have conducted weekly blood tests but haven’t done ANY urine tests in over 4 weeks. Just wondering if that’s standard protocol? I would think they’d want to monitor his kidney function during treatment and would have thought the urine (ACR test Albumin to Creatinine Ratio) test would be performed regularly?? Any thoughts regarding this?
