    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    My partner received Hyper-CVAD and had to spend 4 days in the hospital every 3 weeks for 4 months. After her stemcells were harvested she had even more intensive chemo plus radiation - nearly killing her - before transplanting her stemcells back into her body.

    Easy to Do: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Strongly Disagree

    Radiation

    Twice-daily full body radiation for four days, followed by intensive chemo. Not fun, but it put her into remission so that she could get her clean stemcells returned.

    Painless Experience: Neutral/NA
