Well, my insurance won’t pay for a stem cell harvest unless it’s followed by a stem cell transplant, so I have a lot of thinking to do. If I were to pay for a harvest on my own, it would be about $10,000. That’s not something I can afford right now. I’m still in the Rev/dex EAP, so I have time to think about this. I’m responding pretty well, so I don’t want to change anything right now. My doctor agrees that SCT is something I have to some day, but he thinks the sooner, the better. And he did say they would try to get enough stem cells for 2-3 transplants for the future. I just have a lot to think about.
