Bone Marrow Transplant Result Anxiety
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.
Did you have to make diet changes after your blood cancer diagnosis?
