Stem Cells Transplant

Stem Cells Transplant

So I have some questions on stem cell transplants. Do they do the harvest even if you don't need one yet just to have or do they wait till you need one and then do the harvest? I'm just wondering when my Dr said you need to get a stem cell transplant team together just in case you need one. She said you don't want to have to find one when you actually need it. So I was wondering if it meant I would just meet with them and they would have my records or what. And yes I know next time I see her I… read more

Lower Than Expected Stem Cell Harvest Post Neupogen Injections

Hello everyone
My husband got CDE chemo on October 21 and started Neupogen shots on October 26. His stem cell harvesting was started on November 01. He has NOT been given a catheter. His collection is being done using peripheral veins. The aim was to collect 12 million cells in 4 collections, but he has yielded only 6.5 million cells in the first three days of collection. We are not expecting a miraculous harvest today
He has been told to come for harvesting on day 5 (November 07) also. The… read more

A friend of mine had too go twice and barely gave them enough stem cells and they were ready too keep on harvesting. I was lucky that I gave them more than enough cells the first session.

Other Options Rather Than Stem Cell Transplant

Other Options Rather Than Stem Cell Transplant

Oncologist preparing for stem cell transplant for my husband, but after careful research, he does not know if he wants to undergo such a grueling procedure which has no guarantee of remission. He is doing quite well with his weekly chemo treatments which have astounded his doctors. Has anyone used alternative measures other than stem cell transplant, and instead decided on another version of treatment. We are so overwhelmed and indecisive about this.

A MyMyelomaTeam Member

Hi Dianne - Very glad to hear you're in Remission. Darzalex and its FasPro version has been a real breakthrough treatment for many. Happy New Year & All the Best
