So, the Stanford guy seems to have said I will probably need a bone marrow transplant. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the idea. It still seems pretty unreal & I guess it is unreal still, as they don't even have the report from my last bone marrow biopsy, yet.
He says my brother has a 1 in 4 chance of being a match & that they can collect bone marrow in a relatively pain-free way, similar to how they collect blood, these days.
He says a transplant could be curative. Or, it could kill me. Or, it could give me a condition that would negatively impact my quality of life forever. Not completely on board with the idea of letting them do more horribly invasive stuff just yet, especially because I basically feel fine now.
