Bone marrow transplantation (BMT) has been used very successfully to treat patients whth multiple myeloma. The BMT is done to replace the body's normal blood-forming cells which will be destroyed by chemotherapy. BMT itself is not a cure for multiple myeloma, but it does allow the body to recover its blood forming capacity after chemotherapy, which allows your oncologist to use chemotherapy more effectively. I am certain you are in good hands and there is no need to be fearful of the procedure.
