Relapse

Have you relapsed and if so what has that been like for you? How did you feel about it? What questions are you now apt to ask your healthcare team?

  1. I was in remission for 10 months and then my cancer came back hard, I now have AML, getting treatments and soon I hope to have bone marrow transplant, when ratios get into right range - U of MN have several possible matches, so hopefully that will happen soon

    1. Maria, it's been a while.😀
      You are so correct with the needle in the haystack factor. You just don't know what you don't know. Wishing you the very best!

    2. good to hear from you! So glad to hear there are matches for your transplant. Wishing you the best!

  2. I have had the "good fortune " of being diagnosed with both blood-cancer and prostate cancer. It was the latter cancer that came back after treatment. While emotionally devastated when first learning of a relapse I realized in time that many other treatments were available and that my life would continue to go on.


    The best advice I received from another patient who also experienced a relapse was this ... 1) Take it all one day at a time and ...2) Enjoy life and the people in it vs focusing on possible negative outcomes that may never happen ... 🙏🏻 Dennis (Blood-Cancer.com TEAM)
