  2. I have returned to treatment only after 3 years. I am on a higher grade chemo to prepare me for bone marrow stem cell transplant. The first cycle I ended up in A&E as my tempatue rose and put on onti-biotic drip. With this second round I was sick and the day after felt quite unwell and had trouble drinking water and eating. So I boiled some water and put some fresh lemon and ginger which helped. Iam 7 days in and realised that my symptoms was due to feeling de-hydrated so I googled. On the link above, explained more about maintaing electrolytes and the recipe did the trick! I wasn't too far off with my own remedy, but with the added lemon, ginger, honey and pink hymalayan salt, I felt so much better. Hope it helps. All the best Helen.
  • Hi again  and well done getting your hydration under control…… this is very important.

    As you may remember I have a different type of incurable Low-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma (CTCL) but what we do have in common is Stem Cell Transplant (Consultants often still use the old term of Bone Marrow Transplant) as I have had 2 Allo (donor) SCTs 

    The first was in June 2014….. this one failed in Dec 2014 (long story) but I had my second in Oct 2015 and I remain in remission to this day, turned 68 last month and I am doing great.

    The SCT journey is rather unique and this is why we have a dedicated group that covers all things SCT…… do click on this link > Stem Cell Transplant then once the link opens do join the group and put up a post and introduce yourself to the group as you will get great support from folks (from many types of blood cancer) who have navigated the SCT rollercoaster.
