All of the work it takes to get to the transplant itself is so much that by the time I was ready for the transplant nothing major truly took place for the transplant itself. The Chemotherapy and radiation that I received was ten times more intense than the transplant itself.
After receiving radiation I felt really zapped and weak, and I began to have a headache which progressed to a migraine. I could not get anything for the headache/migraine because Ibuprofen is counteractive to the transplant drugs I receive and unlucky for me: Tylenol does absolutely nothing for my headaches. So all I could do was ice my head and try my best to relax.
After getting the last bought of chemotherapy and radiation I was given I.V. Imuno-suppressants and then the next day all that took place for the transplant was a small bag of bone-marrow which was white in color hung as an I.V. would and went into my body in less than twenty minutes.
The nurses below were the best of the best & were with me throught the bone-marrow process & continue to be with me through it.
