My doctor says I have a polyclonal gammopathy and I am not sure what this means. Is this something serious? I went to the doctor because I have had chronic diarrhea and lower back pain for over 1 year. It has been months of test after test and I am more confused now than ever. It would be great if anyone could shed some light on this for me.

  • I have just been diagnosed with Polyclonal Gammapathy also and I'm not sure what it means. I have no other symptoms but was told that MGUS has been ruled out. I have to go back to haematology in 8 weeks for check up. I'm confused, my diagnosis was an accidental finding.
