Re: TW Members. Introspection on an Epic scale.

It's day zero....transplant day. It's still quite odd that some random person willingly underwent an operation to save another strangers life. This day is also down to Anthony Nolan, without them there would be no register/transplants/lives saved. I appreciate the time of year it is, but life threat...

Re: TW Members. Introspection on an Epic scale.

He's doing remarkable well. Last dose of chemo done, they've said he will get sick over the next few days. Other than that, all systems go.

Dose of Fludarabine, dose of Ciclosporin (anti rejection drug). Will also be hooked up to hydration fluid for 24 hours. Took his first steps? That's a great m...

Re: TW Members. Introspection on an Epic scale.

Got a message passed to me at work "call the wife". Slightly panicked, I call her. Freddie has had a card delivered, saying that you don't know me but I know your dad, we talk about football sometimes.

Re: TW Members. Introspection on an Epic scale.

Day 3: Campath and Fludarabine (chemo). Also on antibiotics as they found bacteria in his Hickman line. Will be mostly hooked up today, so no fun for his mum....or him.

Also, needs blood transfusion.

Fludarabine actually starts tomorrow.

Re: TW Members. Introspection on an Epic scale.

I will be updating this on a regular basis. If I bore you with any of it, then I apologise.

He's staring the conditioning today, first up is Cam Path, also known as Alemtuzumab. This is the start of them killing the immune system, preparing his body for transplant.
