How do lifestyle factors and exposure to environmental substances affect our cancer risk?

Hi, I am 69 years old, very active - practice yoga, kickboxing, biking, etc. I am also a survivor of stage 3b cervical cancer (5 yrs) Is there anyone out there my age who has experienced a transplant, whether a regular transplant or a "mini" transplant? I am in fairly early stage of CMML - diagnosed early Fall 2011 - and I have not begun medications, but bruise easily and get fatigued. Also, has anyone experienced stomach pain and bloating - I have had an endoscopy and tested for gallstones - negative.
Thanks for any info - God bless all of you!

My mom was diagnosed with CMML on Aug 15th. Just got out of hospital after getting Dacogen chemo for 5 days. She has been experiencing colitis with bloating also. GI test come back negative. She is taking pepcid and Gasx, which seems to help for a little while. Very tired.My mom is 82, so transplant doesn't seem to be an option, unless we push for it.

Sorry to hear about your mom - but it's good to hear I'm not the only one experiencing the bloating, etc. Hope your mom does well after chemo.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
