I was diagnosed with AML in 1986, I was 11 years old at the time. I received chemotherapy, single fraction total body radiation and a bone marrow transplant.
Since then I have have been dealing with late effect after late effect and even though I try really hard to keep a positive spin on life it is beginning to get me down.
Fatty Liver Disease
Type 2 Diabetes
Adult growth hormone deficiency
Primary ovarian faliure
Congestive Heart Failure
I recently had aortic valve replacement surgery
and more recently diagnosed with BRONCHIOLITIS OBILTERANS!
BTW this is just a highlighted list of problems and is not definitive!
I understand that I am in the group of long standing survivours and I would love to talk to anyone who is experiencing servere late effects also.
