I'm waiting on a donor match for a Stem Cell transplant. I'll update this when it happens.
I had 2 bone marrow transplants. One was of cord blood, which failed because my white blood cells would not go up at all. Second transplant was still a MUD, from my mom's 50% matched.
Had a stem cell transplant in August of 2016. Suffered kidney disease as the result of transplant or chemo right before the transplant. Kidney problem lasted for three weeks and then went away. In October I was diagnosed with graft vs. host disease (intestinal). I was on Methylprednisolone until the end of November. In December GVHD symptoms came back, so I was put back on steroids until the end of February of 2017. In March I developed shingles, and was treated with for that with antiviral IV meds in the hospital and then for two weeks at home. I still have some rash from shingles (June 2017), but it's not too bad.
