Improved but still does NOT increase your overall survival (OS). Don’t take my word for it, ask your oncologist.
I should know. I live with chemobrain, chemotherapy-induced heart damage, and chemotherapy-induced nerve damage all as a result of my HSCT. And all of these side effects occurred months or years after my ASCT.
I believe that it is critical to learn as much as you can about the different types of HSCTs (allo, auto, and umbilical cord blood) in order to better understand the risks and rewards of this procedure. Knowledge is power as they say.
Please understand that there are a number of evidence-based, non-toxic therapies to either reduce or eliminate many of the side-effects documented below. The sooner you learn about and implement integrative therapies the sooner you will treat possible long-term and late stage side effects of high dose chemotherapy.
I am both a multiple myeloma survivor and MM cancer coach. To learn more about these therapies, scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply ASAP.
“However, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) survivors are at risk of developing long-term complications, such as endocrinopathies, musculoskeletal disorders, cardiopulmonary compromise and subsequent malignancies.
These complications have a direct impact on the morbidity and mortality experienced by HSCT survivors.
