Hello everyone. I have a cousin who has leukemia (CML). She was diagnoselast year and quickly became very sick. She found a one marrow transplant donor. Her bone marrow now comes up clean but it sounds like it's now in her lymph nodes. She is over 100 days post transplant. It sounds like they want to take her off some of her other meeds and put her back on gleevec with a double dose. I think they may also wish to use some of the donors cells to try to fight it, although it does not sound like it's the same procedure as a bone marrow transplant. I am very confused as to why her bone marrow is clear butbher lymph odes are not.
I find it very difficult to find information about this on the Internet. What I can find is filled with medical terms I often don't understand to tell the truth. I am hoping that maybe someone could help me and provide or point me to some information on this that may help? I am very worried and any help would be appreciated.
