Which course of treatment to pursue? A lot depends upon age and general health.
Younger the diagnosis perhaps warrants a more aggressive approach?
A patient in poor health, i.e. kidneys, liver, etc. might opt for containment of the disease.
None of these questions are simple to answer. For me it was because of my brother’s experience.
He had Myeloma and went to UAMS-MIRT. They gave him 5 yrs that he would not otherwise have had.
I never considered anything like containment.
I’m relatively young and healthy and I want to live to see my grandchildren.
