Hi Paul

Welcome to the group  - although it's a pity you had to join it!  I don't know how much you know about amyloidosis.  There is all sorts of misleading stuff on the internet. If you want to know more you can thrust the NAC website which is full of useful information.  The only other website I trust is Myeloma UK.

I was diagnosed ten years ago and the treatment available now is much better than it was then. 

Let us know how you get on.
