BMT of my 2 year Old Kid
« on: January 14, 2019, 06:48:44 AM »
my 2 year old kid is in hospital for BMT and today its post transplant day 19 and his WBC fell from 6000 yesterday to 4000 today.. doctors started Cyclosporine orally but he is not taking it at all.. yesterday we mixed it with yogurt and then he took it with ease.. now i m afraid that this fall in WBC might be due to mixing medicine with yogurt?? his hb also fell to 7.6.. kindly guide me

on day 19 post transplant my kid received blood transfusion as his HB was 7.6. he also got plateletes transfusion.. doctors switched again to IV for for medicine as he was not taking oral medication. yesterday was day 20 and his WBC was 8 and his Filgen injection was reduced to one per day.. previously he was getting 2 Filgen injections each day.. today on day 21 his WBC reduced to 4.8 and his HB is again 8.8.. need your prayers..

thanks for your kind messege... he is not out of hospital for more than 2 weeks.. last week his hb was 11.2 but it fell to 9.2 two days before.. he actually got a severe diarrhea at BMT unit which still persist till date.. according to doctors its a GVHD and he is receiving Methyle Predisonole 2 mg per kg in addition to other medicines...

This is all very common after BMT. Hopefully, the GVHD will soon be under control.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.

today is day plus 68.. we sometimes give him uncooked banana as well as yogurt.. we will be more careful in future.. his cough is better now.. should we check CBC blood test weekly basis or after two weeks..

I think his Hb should be checked at least weekly as long as it continues to fluctuate.

Has there been any improvement since the cyclosporine dosage was raised?
