Together we will beat cancer


Stem cell transplant

7 Oct 2019 22:11

Hi there

I have a rare type of Leukaemia (mixed phenotype acute leukaemia) which has a 50% survival rate at my age. I am also extremely worried as soon I will have to have a stem cell transplant and have a nasogastric tube inserted. I am very worried over both the survival rate and the stem cell transplant/tube insertion. Any thoughts which may be positive about this?

Hi Bristol100,

Welcome to Cancer Chat. Unfortunately I'm unable to advise on this, not knowing much about the procedure you mention.

It may be best to discuss this with your doctor, or perhaps to have a chat with our nurses if you feel that would help. If so you can reach them on 0808 800 4040 - Monday-Friday, 9-5.

Do use this forum for support from others or to talk through any worries or feelings anytime - it's a very welcoming community of people.

Wishing you all the best,
