A thread bump for those getting ready to go on the SCT Magical Mystery Tour.
If some of the regular members can add to this thread that would be great as any help for folks getting ready for the unit stay will not go wrong.

Hi All, Thank you for an exceptionally useful thread. I am scheduled for a SCT on Oct 3rd and have a busy month in prep. The info available on this site has so far helped me enormously.
Best wishes to All,
Hi Paul SR Polsander, welcome to our corner of the Online Community and it is great that you are finding some of the threads helpful for you. The month leading up to the Magical Mystery Tour that is SCT can be very full of tests and questions but we have a wide collection of folks from a wide range of blood cancer so we can just about cover all the issues that come up.
You don't say what type of SCT you are having.... an Auto using your own cells or an Allo with cells from a donor?
If we can help in any way please hit the'Start a Discussion" tab and fire away as someone is always around to help out
Best regards from the Highlands.
A thread bump for those on the SCT Journey and for those who have been through the SCT tunnel please add anything that would be helpful for others looking into the tunnel.
Thanks Mike, commenting so I can find it under my activity!
