Myeloma : There are many things that go into predicting life expectancy of somebody with myeloma who has an autologous stem cell transplant. The rough estimate for somebody getting a transplant in first remission is about 6-7 years now. However, this is something your oncologist or transplant doctor can talk to you about with more specific information.
