I did not have a BMT but when the option was on the table, my doctor said that after 7 years, your life expectancy returns to "normal". BMT is considered a cure. The fact that you have survived so long without any complications (GVHD) is awesome. One thing I have to remind myself often is that no one knows how long they have on this Earth. Something else could cause my death other than AA, so like she said earlier... Just LIVE.
