I am approved for 1-2 stem cell transplants at the Mayo Clinic Rochester MN which will most likely be in January. MN can be brutal in the winter and if I am going to be away from home perhaps Mayo Phoenix may be a nicer choice. Is there a lot of follow-up after you are released to go back home? If there is alot of followup, is that done with your transplant doctor or back with your oncologist? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
AmyGishAndersen, We don’t really have after care, Just do what we can to eat and drink safely. You are put on an antibacterial diet when you go home and no fast foods, or restaurant foods. Your place must be clean and if you have any animas you must wash your hands when you touch them. You must have really good hygiene. Never clean a
Cat’s Pan, the whole time you are on it. Stay away from others! They carry bacteria, viruses and you can be infected by anyone and it will be very hard to recover. God Bless You. Hav a good night! Love. Marcia 🌼🌸🌻
I think I stayed there for around two weeks while they checked everything to make sure the transplant was stable. It certainly was not more than three weeks. It took me a while to get my head around the whole thing. I actually started to feel better not too long after the transplant. because finally there some ailments that seemed to ease off pretty fast if I may say so.
Hi, Michael! How long did you need to stay in the apartment after transplant before going home? Thanks!
Mayo Clinic is where I had my stem cell transplant 6 years ago , Im from MN, so the winters are usually rough. and in Jan. its cold! just bundle up real good. Rochester is a slow town , so not to worry . I rented an apartment their during the transplant . It may have been the hardest part of my life , however God has never left me and has never left. Ive had lots of follow up and visits with my doctor even after the transplant. The people at the Mayo Clinic MN are the very best !! so no worries on that end , Im sure either Mayo Clinic will be great !
Phoenix will be nicer for the winter for sure.
all the best
