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.

Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer Bone Marrow Transplants

What Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer Survivors said about their Bone Marrow Transplants.

Trying to shrink tumors down to nil before going ahead with stem cell transplant. I now will be needing an outside donor transplant.
I received an autologous transplant in October 2007, which means my own stem cells were used for the transplant. Before starting the chemotherapy I had to harvest my stem cells. The procedure started with a series of growth factor injections which I had to administer myself. I was proud of myself because I am scared of needles and in Port Elizabeth I refused to inject myself (when white blood count is low, you have to be injected with the growth factor). These injections stimulate the bone marrow to produce stem cells. To harvest the stem cells intravenous lines were inserted in both my arms and my blood was filtered through a machine. The machine separates blood and stem cells. The blood returns to your body and the stem cells are collected in a bag. The procedure took 8 hours. The time may vary depending on the amount of stem cells collected. I had to go back the following day for a further 8 hours. The process is not painful and you feel normal while on the machine. I guess the most difficult part is not being able to move around while on the machine. The stem cells were frozen and stored.After the harvest of the stem cells I could start with chemotherapy. In October 2007 I was admitted to the bone marrow transplant unit. I received my last series of chemotherapy (5 days of chemo) which was followed by receiving my stem cells. This procedure is similar to a blood transfusion. I was quite sick during the month in the transplant unit. I experienced mucositus, diarrhoea, nausea, fevers, low white blood and platelet count and loss of appetite, but with time everything got better and since my discharge from hospital everything has gone well. So far I have had no problems.

In December 2016, I had a bowel obstruction surgery to remove a long segment of bowel and my appendix. Since the transplant my AST, ALTs have continued to rise. My kidney function has also declined.
