Dan’s stem cell transplant

Dan B. is undergoing his SCT now in Utah. To read about his experiences, you can go to http://www.mustard.com/myeloma.html.

The stem cell transplant is a very scary thing, if you ask me. It can provide some years of event free survival. The average is about 18 months. Some people get more, some less. A few get no benefit at all. There’s no way to predict. However, the transplant doctor I met with at UNC said that my prognostic factors and good health (other than cancer) give me a good chance for a nice remission after SCT. No guarantees, of course.
