Welcome , to our little corner of the community but always sorry to see folks on the SCT rollercoaster.

I did not get the granddaughters in to see me but they were under three at that point.

Adults was no problem as long as they were fit and well.

If you hit the ‘Discussions’ tab just under the name of the forum you will see all the various threads that have been made up and supported.

It would be good if you give us a touch more info (well done getting your profile done)

What SCT Unit are you being treated at?

Are you having your own cells (Auto) or those from a donor (Allo)? I had two Allo’s with cells from my brother.

Do you know the name of the Conditioning you are going to have - Conditioning is the treatment that is used to kill off your immune system?

We are around to help as we have walked the walk.
