Autologous Stem Cell Transplant Question?

Hi
I am in the process of getting an Autologous SCT. I have to admit it's been a bigger life event than I expected. Currently I am on Day 9-since stem cell infusion.

I had my SCT a little over a year ago. I was a little behind where you are on day 9. I had some mild bleeding issues so I got a couple of transfusions and something to stimulate platelet production. I did as much walking and exercising as I could. My stay lasted 17 days.

My feelings exactly! I have enough cell for another one if I need. So far doing great! I did change Alittle how I eat. I try to eat lots of fruit and veg foods that are chemical free. I know they said anything with chemical is not good.
