Transplant-Day 22

Wow, made it it to day Day22 without major issues. Some early-on issues with nausea that passed fairly soon. I have had a terrible case of mucusitis-mouth and throat that is finally just about gone .Fully engrafted a couple days back, my current abs neut is ,777 and WBC is 1.0, with those numbers climbing every day. My current issue is low platelets with nose and mouth bleeds,but I feel that will wane as my counts continue to improve. I has 17 days in the hospital with these various side effects but feel great about the engraftment. I feel like I am heading into the recovery stage at last.....

This is great news. Hitting a WBC of 1 is a significant milestone. Keep up the great work!

I hope pain medication helped with the mucositis. That was the worst symptom for my wife.
