      They wanted to get 10mil cells from me but only got 6. It took them four days to collected the 6mil. We used neupogen and Neulasta. They had asked me about exposure to radiation, which I had none. Could they get any cells from you and what is the next step?

      Thanks for your input. I got 3 days of neupogen with no stem cells produced and on the 4th day along with neupogen they gave me mobozil. Still no stem cells. I am scheduled to try again in another 7 weeks. I had radiation in Jan. and three rounds of revlimid. Was off of revlimid for 4-1/2 weeks. They thought that this might be inhibiting the stem cell production. Did you get the transplant using the 6mil?
