I've know for a few months that a transplant was in my future. On Friday I got a call from my Hematologist that they had reviewed my pathology from my BMB that my Oncologist at home did a few months ago. The concern is that I might be coming out of remission. So, the transplant I was thinking would possibly be in March is now on a fast track and I'm feeling unprepared. I've read the books. What I would like to know is how this compared to chemo, if you were able to stay by yourself after the 100 days (I live 2.5 hours away so I will have to live in an apartment and will have someone with me till then), what you would have done differently or any kind of useful information that I need to know. I just learned that I have positive matches but they are waiting on approval, then I will go have my testing done and a decision will need to be made on if I will need addionachemo prior to the transplant process. I'm a planner by nature so you can imagine how the not knowing details drives me crazy.
