Hi All,

It has been more than 6 months from day 0 of the Bone Marrow Transplant. My daughter still taking steriod and other anti-GVHD drugs. The doctor is cutting the drug at a very slow pace in order to control the GVHD. GVHD can caused a lot of problems in Unrelated BMT cases and the drugs used to control GVHD are extremely expensive.

My daughter's blood count is stabalized but not back to the normal level at this stage and it takes time to go back to the normal level. The good news is her HB level is around the region of 13 - 15 and she is not transfused for the past 6 months. Platelet is around 60000 - 80000 at this stage. White blood count is the only one which give us problem and it's around 2100-3000 currently. We are not sure if the drugs my daughter is taking can suppress the white count.

The Bone Marrow has engrafted successfully in this case but the doctor is keeping a close eye on GVHD and other side effects of the drugs. Blood test has to be done weekly to monitor the blood count. Hope will get all this over in 1 or 2 months time. We have been very very stressful from day 0 till today.

Thank you.

Hi Everyone

My daughter is recovering well and I expect  a few more blood letting session to go before her ferritin reach the targeted 300.

I was informed by the hospital that the storage of my daughter's back up bone marrow about 2.5 years ago is expiring soon. I am working whether should I continue to store the back up bone marrow or not. The storage costs is not cheap and therefore I am seeking some advices on this matter.

Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

omega

Happy New Year to Everyone.

I received a good news this morning, my daughter's ferritin result is 185 after the 10th Blood Letting. I have been looking forward to this day for a long long time! No more blood letting!!!

Her blood count is all right. The only problem she has now is her hair grows very slow (she did not shave her hair when the transplant was done) and there are some discolouration on her face (the doctor said it would be permanent).

She will be going to the eye specialist tomorrow and hope she will be fine.

Thank you.
