I had a stem cell (bone marrow) transplant. AMA.

Last year I had a stem cell transplant for aggressive, refractory lymphoma, which had failed to respond to the first line of chemotherapy. The stem cell transplant was pretty horrible but has has put me in remission.

I was in hospital for about a month in total, mostly in an isolation room, as I was extremely susceptible to infection. My children were 7 and 4 at the time. It took months to recover from the effects of the chemotherapy which is extremely strong and has pretty horrific side effects, but I'm now nearly back to normal.

I was following this as although I hadn't thought of a question, I was interested in your responses.
I know of a child currently in isolation after a transplant and I'm following his mum's insta posts and stories, it's heartbreaking.
Hopefully this bumps the post

Thank you florence.
I can't imagine having to watch your child go through it. My poor mum found it really hard.
