Anyone had successful stem cell transplant for AML?
How was the stem cell transplant was it by injecting it into the organ or intravenously. Please if you can tell it would be of great help.

@mayor I had an autologous stem cell transplant at Mayo Rochester on June 22. A week prior to that, I.e. 6/15, my stem cells were ‘collected’ through my central line. Collection was scheduled for 3 days but I managed to meet my target within 2 days. On the following Saturday I got the chemo dose (malphalan) and then on 6/22 my frozen and treated stem cells were transplanted through the central line. Typically, recovery post an auto transplant is 21 days, to ensure you meet the required blood counts necessary for a discharge. I’m recovering at home now and looking forward to my 60 day appointment at the end of August. I hope this was helpful.
Wishing you all the very best, Sujata
