Stem Cell Transplant And Dialysis

Stem Cell Transplant And Dialysis

My husband is to have a stem cell transplant early May. He is currently on dialysis, I am wondering if anyone else has experience in this realm and what their outcome was and their experiences in general. I am concerned the process will be too much for his body to handle. Thank you all for your input.

Has Anyone Been Kicked Off Social Security Disability?

Has Anyone Been Kicked Off Social Security Disability?

I'm facing losing my social security disability next month. SSD has sent me three times for medical evaluations and once for a phyc evaluation. They say I'm better and able to return to work without issues. I have five collapsed vertebrates and two fractured ribs, also walk with a cane and have nuerapathy in my hands and feet.

Do FISH Results Showing Chromosome Deletions And Alterations Ever Change Back To Normal As A Result Of Chemo Treatments?

Do FISH Results Showing Chromosome Deletions And Alterations Ever Change Back To Normal As A Result Of Chemo Treatments?

Husband's most recent cytology report from his bone marrow biopsy said "Normal Male Karyotype, no clonal abnormalities detected." A FISH analysis was not done on this biopsy, probably because there were no abnormalities, but the original Fish analysis on the biopsy done at diagnosis, showed multiple chromosome deletions and alterations, leading to a "high risk" prognosis.

Does Anyone Else Struggle With Regulating Your Body Temperature?

Does Anyone Else Struggle With Regulating Your Body Temperature?

I am often cold, when my wife is sweating. When I was first diagnosed with MM I had lost about 60 lbs and 4 1/2” from the vertebrae breaks. Someone told me when you lose that much weight it can be hard to stay warm? Thoughts?
