Once you’re a year post-transplant, you may be gradually getting back into day-to-day life with work, education, friends or family.
Life after a stem cell transplant comes with its own set of challenges. Some people find that the journey to recovery is relatively straightforward, for others recovery can be very difficult and demanding, both physically and psychologically.
Your transplant team will continue to review you in clinic, but you’ll probably be monitored less often – perhaps only every three months. Eventually, a yearly check-up might be all you need. You’ll always have a point of contact, normally the bone marrow transplant co-ordinator or your clinical nurse specialist (CNS).
