Update on transplant
Old 09-08-2019, 10:08 AM

Well i FINALLY have some news-if all goes well it looks like I will have my stem cell transplant mid-October.


I have to pass a lung and heart test and my Pet scan has to be good (the pet scan will hopefully be 9/26; who knows about the other 2)


He wants me to get my strength up and my stamina up. I am going to Physical Therapy, right now once a week. They told me to start with walking 5 min. each time, I almost laughed at them, then I did it and almost cried! I was so out of breath and my chest hurt so much! I am trying to do it 3 times a day but it's torture.


I guess I really couldn't have gone back to work this year

Anyway, I'll be in the hospital for about 26 days then homebound for a while (BORING, considering that's how i have been since Feb.!)



I'm praying that the transplant goes really well and no complications, I need something to go easy and well!


Thank you all for caring!
Rebecca

It's great to hear an update-- especially one that sounds generally positive and like there is positive movement forward. Take it easy and take care of yourself. I'll continue to keep you in my thoughts (with particular good luck for the lung and heart and PET scan tests!). You definitely need and deserve for something to go well!
