Nathan,

I have been reading your posts and am new here.  I have Stage 4 NHL.  My allogenic stem cell transplant was on July 1, 2011.  I know what you are going through.  They kept me for 40 days in the hospital.  For some reason, I didn't want to eat.  They tried to convince me that hospital food was delicious.  Unfortunately for me, I didn't believe them and they kept me longer.  I suggest you do what they say.  It is your key to getting out of there. 

I am still struggling with Graft Versus Host Disease.  I have had 3 clean scans in a row and am now in remission.

They didn't let me outside until I was discharged so you are a very lucky man.  And, I too was kept pretty doped up and don't remember a lot of the first couple of weeks.  You are such a strong person for what hell you have been through so far.  I am rooting for you to get out soon and to see your cats and to take a walk in the sunshine and fresh air!!!

Thanks for the updates.  They are nice to hear.

Traci

Hi Traci,

 I looked all over and didn't see a message from me welcoming you to the group! OOPS...dropped the ball...sorry! Anyways..."WELCOME"! I haven't had a SCT, so I'm very little help for those going through it. I hope all is going well for you since your SCT. Best wishes...Sue  (FNHL-2-3A-6/10-age 62)

Hi Nathan,

It's so good to hear that you've gotten through what is probably the hardest of all of this, and that you're on the mend! Hope your getting more time outside, and get to see your kittens soon.

I have two cats and two children, and being away from them will be so hard when I go through my procedure. 20+ days is just so long. At least the family can visit, but that won't work for the cats. Need to get them certified as therapy cats.

Sending good thoughts and healing vibes your way.

Warmly,

Liana
