MGUS monitoring: What tests do you have done regularly?
I was diagnosed with MGUS about a year ago. They have been screening with labs. I’ve noticed some MGusers have bone marrow tests and some don’t. Is there a criteria we should know about?
😊 Thank you

I was recently diagnosed with MGUS (IgG lambda) while being tested for other things. After having a lumbar puncture, my CSF IgG came back as low. I’m concerned that the two may be connected or that the low IgG may trigger the MGUS to progress. I live in a fairly rural area where no one seems to understand this very well. Should I be worried?
Did they do a bone marrow biopsy? That would be in pelvic bone.
I googled you test and says they look for low numbers. Check back with your doctor who ordered test? Prayers all goes well.
