Does multiple myeloma affect the bowels?

Multiple myeloma itself doesn’t primarily target the bowels. However, various factors related to the disease or its treatment can influence bowel health. For example, certain chemotherapy drugs can lead to side effects like diarrhea or constipation. Furthermore, high calcium levels in the blood (hypercalcemia), a complication of myeloma, can result in constipation. It’s essential for patients to report any significant changes in bowel habits to their healthcare provider.
