Bone Marrow Transplant Result Anxiety

Last updated: August 2021

I am 20 months post bone marrow transplant for AML. My last visit at the end of January showed all positive results. I return to the doctor at the beginning of May.

I’m concerned about my next visit. I’ve been told if I make the two-year mark, that it bodes well for me to make it to the 5-year cured status. I feel very anxious about the next milestones.

How can I persevere for the next few months of waiting for the next results?

I worried I am not continuing to improve. I don’t know if it’s because of my anxiety or if it is a reality.

I am taking an antidepressant, but I still feel very uncertain about my future.

Any thoughts or suggestions on how to deal with these feelings would be appreciated.
