Greetings from the other side

AussieNeil very kindly suggested some people were concerenrned as to what had happened to me post transplant and asked that I post to reassure people that I am okay. So here I am, okay. I was discharged from hospital last Friday, May 29th, and to be honest I was not in great shape. The transplant had been a success - my bloods were all "normal" and I didn't need any products, but three weeks of not eating and drinking poorly had taken their toll.

A week later, thanks to my wife's cooking, I am on the mend and able to get up and about. I have three months to recover before work. Many thanks for all concerned messages, I have been deeply touched.

  • Hi Steve

    So absolutely delighted to hear from you. I think many of our community have been wondering how you are, those who write and those who lurk.

    You have been through the most difficult of times and come through the transplant, that's a huge step forward. May you soon regain your health and strength and enjoy all life has to offer without any further setbacks.

    I'll raise my glass to your future when I have my wine with lunch.

    Best wishes


  • Cheers!

  • Good news Steve, all the best for the future.


  • go, Steve, go!

    sending all good wishes! my husband is over 15 months post HSCT now. still working on GVH issues but the transplant "worked" and no CLL is detectable. we just have to convince New Guy to stop attacking various bits of Old Guy :)
