Today we had a meeting with the doctor in charge of transplant. She gave us some extra informations, like the name of the drugs to be used during the “conditioning period” (translation: the period during which chemotherapy and immunotherapy will be used to clean up all my hematopoietic stem cells plus some other things like immune system). 3 “drugs” will be used : fludarabine, busulfan and rabbit antilymphocyte serum… The duration is 6 days. At the end, I will be in myelosuppression (aplasie médullaire in french)…I will be ready for the hematopoietic stem cells transplant given by the donor..
Before leaving, she told us to enjoy life during this waiting period!
