Hi, I posted my mothers story two days ago but unfortunately didn't give it the right subject - so have had no responses yet.

<:AtomicElement>My mum, Jackie(63) has AML and is in remission for the second time there are suitable donors (all non family) available for a BMT but the Doctor is suggesting that she doesn't have the transplant due to the high risks.Please if anyone has information for us or has gone through a similar experiance, that could help her make this difficult decission we would really appreciate it.

<:AtomicElement>Many thanks

I had a non relative donor bone marrow. It has been 80 days now they say its the "cure" the doctors will make sure the bonemarrow donor is a very close match. The bad part is you have to be on pills for a while but they sure beat chemo by far. It will be ok

Thank you so much for your message Serena.  I am due to have a transplant in four to six weeks time and am very nervous about the procedure itself and the medication and monitoring after this. It is wonderful to know that you have responded so well to your transplant.My thoughts are with you.
