Reply To: SCT… What is the success rate.

July 16, 2012 at 7:32 pm

I am 11 months post stem cell transplant and I feel cured. It was so worth it! Before sct, I was on weekly IVIG and scheduled to increase to 2x/week, my last treatment was a year ago. I was on oral chemo, now none. I was on 8 prescriptions for pain management, now I take none. I was in constant pain and debilitating fatigue. Now I still have some pain, but it is low and manageable and continues to decrease. Last summer I could barely walk and used a wheel chair if walking involved more than car to house. This summer I am dancing 2 nights/week. I have so much energy and am working full time and living an active lifestyle again. A little on my story is on facebook, “CIDP and Stem Cell Transplant”. You can “friend” me and I will be happy to speak with you about my experience. This was, without any doubt, the best decision ever!
