Life and Times of A Stem Cell Transplant

Postby SueD » 18 Jan 2014 11:07

Today is the 8th day since my husband, John's Stem Cell Transplant.

I am keeping a blog on his behalf to inform family and friends, and because we have much appreciated previous blogs as a means of learning what will be happening to him, from a patient’s perspective.

John is 65 and was diagnosed with CMML last summer, at Heartlands Hospital in Birmingham. The diagnosis was changed from a different form of MDS(sorry, cannot remember what it was). Until this change he was on Watch and Wait, and we had not expected to be offered a transplant, only palliative transfusions, because we thought he was too old. In other respects John is healthy, and had had no previous treatment with transfusions.
We are most fortunate for a German Donor to have been found.

My wife has Hypoplastic MDS and perhaps the chance of a 9/10 unrelated BMT from a German donor. She has a rare genetic make up as a result from a Grandmother from Mauritius. We have been waiting almost 2 years but no 10/10's around.
