I was wondering if there is anyone out there that has had a Reduced Therapy (Mini) Allogenic (Donor) SCT?
I've recently relapsed and gone through treatment for Stage IV indolent NHL. The doctors are saying that I am currently in remission but the cancer will again relapse. They say that at this point, I can either "wait and watch" or have a reduced therapy SCT. I have a matched donor already.
I'm trying to make a decision but would like to hear about experiences.
In particular what was the scheduling, i.e. how many weeks in the hospital? I've been told 100 days in the out-patient apartment.
Also, how were the drugs tolerated before the SCT and how did you feel after the transplant, how soon to you felt back to normal, etc.
Thanks so much for any info.
