      Hey, welcome to the community! As far as I know it all depends on the will to live. In general , the life expectancy is higher in young people than the aged. It also depends on healthy living and life style.Just keep the hope alive , take good care of yourself!

      Welcome here buddy! Feel free to ask all the questions! Myself and others here will support and share some of the knowledge and experiences we have. Multiple myeloma survival rates can differ based on age, general health, and disease stage at diagnosis, among other factors. Thanks to improvements in treatment choices, the survival rate has generally increased over time. These days, a large number of multiple myeloma patients are living longer and in better health. cheers!

      Due to the new medication’s available, the survival rate has changed drastically. In my multiple myeloma support group we have folks that have had 20 years of disease and continue to live nicely. I remember when I started my journey, I was very concerned about how long the survival rate was however, my oncologist said to me, you have no death stamp on the bottom of your foot.

      I was diagnosed 2 years and 3 weeks ago. I was told at the time that my prognosis was 2 years. So, here I am, still alive and kicking.

          @Smithys @Smithys I feel just fine and try to ignore the odd niggle. Biggest problem is itching (Pruitis).they don’t appear to have a cure for it, but my GP recommend Dermacool 5% menthol team, which I now use, as necessary, and that works ok.the trouble is that we don’t really know what the cancer symptons are and it makes it difficult to differentiate between old age grumbles and rhe cancer.Keep smiling.

      I've had it for almost 9 years now. Pretty sure it depends on each different person and the way your body reacts to treatment. There are so many options for chemo and new ones are coming online regularly. I believe the chances are good, with treatment, that the survival rate is high. I'm hoping to die of old age and not from MM. 🙂

      very personal, I remember that when I asked my physician about my MM he said that the median time for disease-free survival varies, but it's approximately 30 months with standard treatments.

      I'm sorry to hear about your recent diagnosis. The documented 5-year survival rate for multiple myeloma is around 55%, but super important to remember that these are just statistics of a large population and everyone's journey is different and unique, there are a lot of outliers and it depends on a lof ot different factors... Stay positive and keep fighting! 🌺
