Did your blood group change post transplant?

Hi,
Just curious whether your blood group changed after transplant? I thought mine had initially changed, but I think it's different again! But all my other blood are fine.
Thanks.

Over a period of time your blood type will change to that of the donor if it is different from yours. If donor type is different you have to watch it because with certain types a donation of your original type can kill you.

I never received any blood until after my actual transplant, and yes, my blood type changed. I rem. that I was given red cells twice that were my new blood type when I was in the hospital. No other blood b4 or after though. I just suffered through it and took iron tablets and folic acid. I had no idea that your donor could have a different blood type b4 my whole transplant experience. crazy stuff

My husbandís did. I believe his hgb dipped down (it was kind of scary) when it was making the switch.

Thanks for replys. So interesting. So my blood type is still my original! Chimarism is still 100%. Not sure why it hasn't changed. I have a heamatology appointment next week so will ask the professor.

Just for people that are looking at these posts..

I saw my heamatologist last week.. he is not sure why my blood group hasnt changed.. donor was A+ and I am currently O+. All other bloods are fine so I am a bit of a mystery. He said it is rare, but can happen.

Thanks for reading

Still my old blod group

Hi Lisa, greetings from Finland. I made my SCT in January (had AML and probably MDS) and I still have my old bloodgroup. I also have O+ and the donor had B+. This is called ”major bloodgroup mismatch” and sometimes it takes several months to change. Sometimes a year, they told me. Something is anyway happening now because I do not need any bloodtransfusions any more. Doctors have told me this happens now and then when there is this major mismatch. At the beginning after SCT my marrow did not make ANY red cells, that was a bit scary. My other numbers are OK and I am OK, no GVHD.
Sorry my bad English. Hope you have a good summer!

Hi sylvia,
Thanks for your reply! Wow that would have been scary not making any red blood cells initially! Good to hear everything is going well now. All the "late" change of blood types seem to have lower red blood cell counts before they change to the donors blood type... but I have had no issues with my red blood cells. Keep up the good work!
Lisa

Thank you Lisa. OK, now I understand your situation. This all is so amazing that sometimes it looks like we do not get answers. But it is wonderful that you are fine anyway!
