my boyfriend is 33 and was diagnosed with cml last July 2018 he has had all 3 tki tablets and has become resistant to all of them and is having a stem cell transplant next month

i have spoken with consultants and nurses at the hospital but was wondering if anyone has gone through the same or has had a family member or knows anyone who has gone through this?

Hi  and welcome to the Online Community, although I am sorry to see you finding us and so sorry to hear that your boyfriend has CML and is having to go through Stem Cell Transplant (SCT)

I am Mike . I did not have CML but a rare type of Non Hodgkins Lymphoma - I have been through two SCTs with Stem Cells from my brother and I am in remission so be encouraged.

I help out in our dedicated Stem Cell Transplant Forum. This would be the best place to meet up with a lot of folks from all types of blood cancer who have been through the process.

SCT can be hard work but all very do-able. The folks on the SCT forum have walk the walk so can talk the talk
