Just heard from my stem cell transplant coordinator with my appointment schedule. Here it is! I am so happy to know!
5/9 and 5/10 Extensive appointments including bone marrow biopsy, placing subclavian line, and tests to get baselines on everything from eyes, sinuses, heart, lungs, etc., and possible PET scan.
5/11 Sign consent forms
5/13 Begin Busulfan protocol (they will administer the drug to me and then take blood samples several times that day to determine what protocol I will be in. This drug is a chemo conditioning drug used for stem cell transplantation patients.)
5/17 I will be admitted into the hospital
5/23 My donor’s stem cells will be collected
5/24 Transplant day for me! My new birthday 🙂
