It has been 5 years since my transplant and I can officially say I am cured now! I have been off all medications related to transplant for the past 6 months and really have not had any issues past couple years. The next doctor visit is in December 2015 and at that visit there may be a decision to make about doing a final bone marrow biopsy.
I recently attended the Siteman Bone Marrow survivors dinner and it was great seeing how many people have recovered fully and gone on with their lives. But there are still a lot of people who never get a transplant, or just have ongoing problems. So lets hope medical science keeps making great advances to allow blood cancers to become a manageable treatment and someday eliminate them entirely!
