    I'm scheduled for a stem cell transplant in March. I'd like to talk to anyone who has had this procedure done.

      Hope everyone reads this. I am going in today for a stem cell transplant. I knew this day was coming last Dec. Along with other information, this post really helped me with doing this procedure. Thanks What Next and all who share their experiences.

      I had a dual transplant in 2004-05 over a 4-month period. Since I was carefully treated and had no immunity issues, there were no side effects from the transplant. It was very effective. I've been in remission for over 7 years.

      I also had a stem cell transplant Sept. of 2011. There was some discomfort when they harvested the cells, (my own) and the chemo that they gave me to prepare for the infusion made me quite ill. After the proceedure it took me about 10 days to get back to normal. It was well worth the pain and discomfort. My numbers are great and I am back living a pretty normal life. Good luck to you!
