Thankyou for your recent reply regarding survival rates, doctors have said he has a poor prognosis and is high risk we are going to see a professor next week regarding sct, is this a normal process ?
I am sorry to hear this. Yes, it can be normal to refer patients on to a haematologist specialising in transplant. This is because not every hospital is a transplant centre and it is a very specific field of haematology. Take. Notebook with you and write everything down as there will be lot of information given to you. And remember, there is no such thing as a silly question! It's important that you understand everything. If you have any questions come back to either myself or Jane ( transplant nurse on this forum) and we will be glad to help. Good luck!
