I was quietly celebrating my life after 1 year of diagnosis. Every thing looked good, just the way we wanted it to be after the transplant.
But just two days before Day +100, we found 0.6 x 10^9/L of blast in my blood.
Where did they come from?
The high dose chemotherapy should have wiped out all bad blood in me. In April, I was totally cleared of leukaemic cells. My blood cells and bone marrow then were all matured from the stem cells my brother donated to me.
What went wrong?
I can’t believe this is happening to me, again. I dread the thought of chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant. I dislike hospital stays.
My hope and optimism are consumed by this devil, every time it returns.
