Sexual Health After A Bone Marrow Transplant

I have adopted this saying to my own life: H.O.T.! Honest, open, and transparent. I live my life by this saying. Itโ€™s important to me that I continue to stay genuine, authentic, humble, and candid about my battle with cancer.

Warning: This video is about sexual health. I know this can be a sensitive and touchy subject. Not everyone wants to speak about this subject, and some are shy to say anything because it can be embarrassing to speak about your private life with your oncologist. I feel the same way, but if I have questions, eventually, Iโ€™ll get the courage to ask them, even if Iโ€™m very nervous.

I was very nervous about doing this video on this subject. The reason I choose to film this is because there are a lot of patients suffering in silence about this and it only takes one person to speak up and let others know you're not alone. So I will take the step and speak out, and also give others an awareness that this can happen when dealing with graft-versus-host disease.
