My mother in law has not been well for about 3 years. She has lost a lot of weight and is now weighing 85 pounds. We have seen a lot of doctors but no one can figure out what is wrong. Besides loosing the weight she has NO energy she is lying in bed all day and is always cold. This past week she has passed out twice (it has happened before but not as frequently) so now she is in the hospital with a broken back and broken nose due to the falls. Her doctor never told us about this disease MGUS the nurse at the hospital said he told her this is what she needs treated for. I have been looking it up on the net but don't understand all the medical terms. What can be done to help with this disease and to help her have energy? Where do we start? Oh the doctor has her taking some medicine that is a form of chemo but very mild. She is being transfered to Hershey Medical Center as we speak for treatment. Can anyone help?
