    So sorry to hear the bad news. My grandmother battled Hodgkins Lymphoma for the last 20 years of her life. She'd get treatment, it'd go away for 4 or 5 years and show up somewhere else. Every time her hair grew back, it came back darker and thicker than before. So there's a silver lining.

    Best wishes and will be praying for you and yours.

    I've got no hair on top to speak of, but I don't think I'd want to go that route!

    Hi again Nick - wife & I had a couple of friends (now, both gals) who had chemotherapy - their hair did return differently (maybe the hair follicle genes were affected - just thinking like a physician) - but one had long red hair which came back brown & curly (at first many thought that it was a wig - ) - BUT, hoping the best for you - Dave
    If you are helped, increase the reputation of the poster -

    You have our deepest sympathies, we have a very good friend who has completed the rigours of a Stem Cell replacement. Thankfully, he is as healthy as one could ask. He is part of a world wide support group, unfortunately he is not a Mac supporter.
    If you would like to contact him, let me know and I will forward your data to him, he is a great person.
    You have a good one and take care.

    Hullo Nick

    Along with all your other friends on the Forum, I wish you well. And I'm a medic (in the UK, like you).

    I wonder if there was a practical side to your question which we could quietly address in a totally non-morbid way.

    It would make sense to trust your nearest and dearest with those passwords which would allow them to access your Mac and account should there be a need to do so whilst you are in therapy, incapacitating as we all know that is. You may also be in hospital for a time.

    Things like your admin PW, your Apple ID and the like, would make life easier for those required to answer emails and deal with all kinds of personal matters. Very frustrating to be locked out of your Mac at a time when they would deem it insensitive to approach you for these.

    Please, please, don't take this the wrong way. I'm suggesting practicality.

    My sincere best wishes to you.

    I don't know you but just happened upon this thread. I'm a cancer survivor too. Wishing you a thorough recovery.

    In the key of C,
    Hey Nickr, your situation kinda puts a different lens on the world and the all the people and all the toys in it don't it?
    What prayers can do they can do better with a can-do attitude. You seem to be one with a PMA.

    I have not gone to your blog-yet-I'm actually in the oncologist waiting room here in Maplewood, MN, USA. I'm a 67 year old musician, blues, lived the life since the day I left home at 16. 50 some years?, What ever, never was good at math I better at MAC.

    My Cancer is ON MY VOCAL chord, yup, no more singing the blues—so when I sing again I will be singing a different tune. That's what I can do, I can learn from the playback of all the things I said in the past, the way I said them and why I said them.

    I'm taking too much space here, but found it, once again, a spiritual thing, finding YOU and your story here in a place I only expected to find 0's and1 stuff.

    Nickr, I pray you stay looking toward the light and that light shines the way for you to the healing place, to wholeness and a way to pay forward what you learn on your journey.

    Multiple Myeloma
    Hi Nick,

    My mother had this diagnosis in 1980. No one else I knew had it until a few years ago. They gave her 6 mos., she lived 8 yrs. She was able to be at my wedding and play with my two daughters! I'm 63 now, 2 yrs. ago we moved to a new state and a 100 yr. old house. Next door, two wonderful people live in another ancient house.

    Chris is the husband; he has Multiple Myeloma. This man and his amazing wife are extraordinary. She married him because (and this was years before he was ill) he has an irrepressible joy for life. He has such exuberance people are drawn to him. The illness hasn't dulled him a bit. He's a favorite.

    Nick, find a Chris. Better yet, I'll put you in touch. Let me know. I'll be praying for you and your loved ones. No matter how long any of us has, we're still here for all kinds of important reasons. Celebrate the festival of finding them.

    Paula

    After suffering with a bad back for around 3 months I finally saw my GP and arranged an x ray. After investigations at hospital it turns out I have multiple myeloma - cancer of my bone marrow.

    This as you can imagine has turned out to be devastating for me but more so for my family and friends.

    I am looking forward (if that's the right way of putting it) to 12 weeks of chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant and then hopefully a remission. The cancer is treatable only so will return at some stage in the future but I'm not thinking about that.


    If you like, you can follow my blog at during the meanwhilst

    It's not all about doom, gloom and illness but more a sideways glance at life now I've a chance and the time to think about things!

    If anyone here has gone or had a relative or friend go through the same illness and would like to share any expreriences please let me know.

    Thanks everyone.
    Nick all the very best. This stuff does work. They are the words of my wife's oncologist. She is on her 5th of 6 sessions of chemo after three she had another CT scan and the good news is her lung tumour has shrunk quite dramatically and 5 spots on her liver of which 4 have gone and the 5th has reduced from 17mm to 4mm so Nick we as a family went from fear and trepidation to sheer delight.You seem a very forward looking chap and I believe that has something to do with a successeful treatment the body follows the brain so to speak. Good on you mate and I pray that you soon get good news. Johnnie
