My partner has Hodgkin's, for the THIRD time...she is 32. Instead of following along her career path and establishing herself professionally, she is facing a donor stem cell transplant...and we have been trying to get her in remission for almost a year so that she is in the best possible place when we take her to transplant. And transplant is not walk in the park. We are going to Dana Farber and they gave us a book to read pre transplant...it is enough to scare us into not even having the transplant. Have any of you done the donor stem cell transplant? It is the only hope for a cure...and at the age of 32 of course we want a cure!!! I am trying to keep my full time job, which is stressful since I work in healthcare....she hasnt worked in almost a year, and we are both getting pretty exhausted. How do people do this long term? I am so tired and I don't even feel we are at the hardest part yet, which is a year of worry and obsessive cleaning and food prep post transplant to manage symptoms, infections and trying to prevent GVH Disease. Any advice from any warriors out there?
