My own experience was admission about six days prior to the SCT. This involved having a port with three lums inserted. Four days of additional chem as a prep. Day One consisted of a dedicated Transplant Nurse introducing the stem cells via IV from a 10/10 match unrelated donor found on Be The Match. Typically then, hospitalization lasts 16-20 days depending on WBCs recovery. Follow on appointments initially were three times a week with IVs depending on blood results. About day 50 this was reduced to twice weekly. Day 80 this dropped to once a week. Prior to release at day 100, there is a BMB and port removal. Be Strong and Persevere.
Yes. Transplants should be performed by specialized physicians. Hospitalization usually requires 100 days of complete isolation in hospital after transplant and usually before transplant preparing for it. Best wishes.
I live in Baltimore, Md and go to Hopkins for treatment. I am scheduled for a marrow transplant in August. As far as I understand, which could be wrong because of chemo brain, I will not be required to stay inpatient after the transplant as long as I can travel to the clinic every day for blood work and needed support: transfusions, platelets, IV meds, etc.
I did a Google search, and it came up with several links about bone marrow transplant from many respectable sites. I live in Maryland, so I copied the link for Bone Marrow Transplantation listed by Johns Hopkins Hopsital: https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/treatmen... - but there are many others as well.
