Jun 6, 2019 · MGUS at young age in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I was diagnosed in 2012 with MGUS. At that time I did have any treatments but I was monitored every 3 mo. with blood testing. In Oct 2018 it had gone into multiple myeloma and it’s fortunate because of my frequent monitoring that I did not have any issues or symptoms from it. My treatments with chemo started in November and I am scheduled for SCT in August.

Sorry I can’t be much help now since I haven’t had my SCT yet but I can share the information I have. I am scheduled for my pre transplant testing July 23
( said to expect 4 days for this) then my SCT procedure which includes my stem cell collection then the transplant to begin on Aug 22. My Dr said to expect a 6 week stay for this. Mine is being done outpatient. Since we do not live near Mayo we have reserved an apartment at the Charter House for our stay.

May 26, 2019 · Stem Cell Transplant: How does it affect your eyes? in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I’m scheduled to get a SCT in Aug at Mayo MN. I wear contacts and was wondering if during the time I’m receiving and recovering from this would I be able to wear them. I’ve heard others say they had very dry eyes. I have glasses (which I almost never wear) but if I need to wear often I was going to get new glasses.

Thanks your advice is VERY helpful. My one concern was there was not a washer in the unit but was told there were washers on the 4th floor. Did you have any problems having washer available when needed?
