Someone from Duke called me late Friday to tell me that Dr. Long, of the Adult Bone Marrow and Stem Cell Transplant (ABMT) Program, could see me Monday morning. That was fast. There are three questions I have for him.
- Will they use stem cells that were harvested someplace else when the bone marrow plasma cells were at 30%
- If I have to re-harvest, do I have to have chemo again for mobilization?
- Do they require an outpatient procedure or is inpatient also an option?
I’m sure I’ll think of others before I get there.
