Hi Folks

I have been home just over a week now and feel not too bad. 5 weeks since Transplant. 
I have bouts of nausea every day. Consultant has tweaked my meds a bit to try and combat this , also trying to eat little bits  but  more often. 
I feel quite tired at times but I see a wee snooze as helping me to heal. 
I can’t believe that I was in hospital for 4 weeks and now I’m home. 
Hope everyone is doing well and thank you all for your support via this group. 

Much Love 


  • Hi Fiona it’s good to hear from you and to hear that you are doing ok.

    The post SCT week’s even months are a journey of discovery as you slowly push the limits that were in place when you were wrapped in the duvet cover of the SCT unit.

    Its a balances between doing to much and pushing your recovery back a few steps but not doing enough and the recovery taking longer……. You are walking the tune line to recovery.

  • Hi Fiona,

    Great to hear your home. After 4 weeks in the Queen Elizabeth  I was thrilled to be going home. First few weeks are ropey, I've been home for 3 months and I'm feeling pretty good. Eat well get plenty of rest you'll get there.

    Take care 


  • Thank you , glad to hear you’re feeling a good bit better. 
    I was at my own Consultant today who was really pleased with how I am , considering it’s only been 5 wks since Transplant. 
    Queen Elizabeth team were all amazing. Debbie did my 28 day marrow last week. 
    Take care and thanks for your reply Smiley

  • Glad to hear you are home and doing well Fifimac. As Af55 says the first few weeks are a trial especially eating! You are doing great to keep trying little bits  I promise your appetite will return, 2 years on I am now the other way and could do to loose a few pounds! I am back in Glasgow for my 2 year  appt in September, will try and pop up to see Debbie and the other ANPs if they are around. Wishing you a continued smooth recovery, listen to your body, sleep lets you body and mind repair( always interspersed with gentle exercise) Slight smile

  • Hi Fifimac

    I'm delighted your home from hospital and feeing not too bad. Upwards and Onwards now!!! Well done you 

  • Great that you are recovering well at home. Get plenty of rest and just listen to your body. I am just approaching my 100 days  SCT and now I'm wanting to go out into the world and start living again. I know I still need to be careful and patient and not to do too much too quickly. I hope the sun shines more in September.
