Rather a cryptic title but it represents Extra Corporeal Photopheresis my latest rounds of treatment at Manchester to tackle the Graft Versus Host where as the attached pic shows I'm hooked up to a futuristic type machine which extracts as much blood as is safe for weight, blood counts, separates my white cells and exposes them to UV light before its all returned to my emaciated bod. They say they don't fully know how it produces a result but it takes a few months to bear fruit and treatment can last a year or so starting at 2 consecutive days a fortnight going to once a month later on. Each session is about one and a half hrs.
I'm very grateful for the opportunity to be given this revolutionary treatment. It can affect your eyes so ideally you need to wear shades for up to 24 hrs after and be wary of too much sun.
Hope all my Forum buddy's are in good fettle as we get well into Spring and my regards to you all. Chris x
