Donor Cells

Donor Cells

I am interested to learn from those who have had a stem cell transplant for AML or any leukemia for that matter. I would like to ask what you percent of donor cells did you have after transplant? How long since your transplant. Anyone who transplant has not cured? Thanks for any information.

Or should I just be grateful to make it through the SCT - which was the hardest thing I have ever done. Did not think I was going to make it.

Has Anyone Who Received A Stem Cell Transplant Gotten The COVID Vaccine?

Has Anyone Who Received A Stem Cell Transplant Gotten The COVID Vaccine?

I'm almost at my 2 year anniversary of my stem cell transplant (!), I'm still immunosuppressed, and I'm supposed to get the COVID vaccine soon. I was wondering if any stem cell transplant recipients have gotten the vaccine and do they have any side effects? Or anyone who is still immunosuppressed and has gotten the vaccine experienced side effects? I'm excited to worry less about getting COVID but I'm nervous about being put in the hospital for side effects of the vaccine. Any insights would be… read more

Post Stem Cell Transplant Weight Loss.

Post Stem Cell Transplant Weight Loss.

During my initial one month hospitalization where I underwent a week of 7/3 chemotherapy I lost 20 lbs. In the 6 weeks out of the hospital I have put on 24 pounds. I am curious how much weight I can expect to loose with the 3-4 week hospital stay post transplant. I am tentatively scheduled for my transplant the end of this month. Thanks in advance.

Life Expectancy?

Life Expectancy?

When I asked my oncologist how aml changed my life expectancy, she said she didn't want me to have negative thoughts so she didn't want to answer the question. So, I did some research and learned the average is 5 years. Talk to me about this! Please

I Would Like To Hear From Anyone Who Has Been Diagnosed With TPLL.

I have yet to see any comment or information offered about TPLL, a form of lukemia. It would be extremely helpful to hear from people who have this diagnosis and who have had treatment with the drug Campath or had a stem cell transplant..
