Has anyone experienced any Long-Term issues as far as arthritis or brittle bones since treatment? I was diagnosed in 2001 with AML and did the 3 rounds of chemo as well as a stem cell transplant. I have been cancer free since October of 2001 but noticed some ongoing issues especially in the past year or two. I have been experiencing ongoing headaches, toothaches and bone pain. My family doctor says it could be a long term effect of all the chemo but it just doesn't make much sense to me. I haven't had any issues up until recently so I'm wondering if this has happened to anyone else.
Also has anyone heard of blood types changing after a transplant? I was born with Bpositive blood and after the stem cell donation from my brother my blood type changed to his and is now Onegative. Again, my family doctor seems to think this is something "un natural" so I'm wondering if anyone else had this experence. Thanks in advance!
