Our healthcare experts will talk to you & discuss all treatment options which are available & deliver care which is customized to your specific requirements. Bone marrow or stem cell transplant comprise of lengthy & complicated procedures which typically involve the following stages.
The patient will need to undergo a series of tests & examinations prior to undergoing bone marrow transplant in order to ensure that they are healthy enough for the treatment to be carried out. Despite underlying conditions, bone marrow transplant treatments tend to be more successful in patients who are in good overall health. Tests & Examinations conducted on prospective bone marrow transplant patients generally include the following.
Stem cells which will later be used for transplant are required to be removed & stored after the patient has undergone to check for overall health. It is now possible to remove stem cells from the patient's own blood or bone marrow & which can eventually be transplanted later following the removal of damaged or cancerous cells. Moreover, it is also possible to utilize stem cells from a matching donor's blood or bone marrow. The three main methods which are utilized for harvesting stem cells include the following.
Treatments involving high doses of chemotherapy & at times radiotherapy will be required in order to destroy existing diseased bone marrow cells so as to make room for transplant tissue. Along with this existing cancerous cells may also be required to be destroyed & the immune system is to be stopped for reducing the risk of rejection of transplant tissue. BMT patient will be given a range of medications as part of conditioning treatment. A central line is usually inserted for this purpose into the large vein near the patient's heart through which medications are administered into the body instead of numerous injections. BMT patient is usually required to stay at the hospital for a week's time throughout the conditioning treatment. There are several unpleasant side effects of the conditioning treatment including tiredness, hair loss & sickness but which are temporary in nature. The bone marrow transplant treatment team will, however, discuss risks of treatment with the patient prior to conducting the procedure.
Bone marrow or stem cell transplant will usually be carried out for a day or two following completion of the conditioning treatment. Stem cells are slowly passed into the patient's body through a central line. The entire BMT or stem cell transplant procedure lasts for about two hours of time. Since the transplant procedure will not be painful, no anesthetic will be administered & the patient will be awake throughout the operation.
The patient will need to stay at the hospital for a few weeks until stem cells settle within their bone marrow & begin producing new blood cells after completion of stem cell transplantation procedure. BMT patients during recovery are likely to feel weak & experience diarrhea, vomiting and/or loss of appetite. They will, however, be given fluids either through the mouth or by a tube running from the nose to the stomach in order to prevent malnutrition. Since they have a low count of platelets & red blood cells immediately following BMT, patients will also receive regular blood & platelet transfusions. During this time stem, cell transplant patient will have to stay in a germ-free room where visitors will be required to wear protective clothing in order to prevent transmission of infections to the patient who is having a low count of infection-fighting white blood cells within their system.
Most stem cell transplant patients are good enough to leave the hospital between 1 - 3 months of time following BMT treatment. They may, however, have to stay longer at the hospital in case they develop complications like developing infections. Even after discharge from hospital BMT patients will still be at potential risk of developing infections for a year or two since it takes some time for the immune system to get back to full strength. Moreover, for BMT patients who had received donated stem cells may usually also require taking immunosuppressant medications in order to reduce the risk of the body attacking transplanted cells or for reducing the risk of the transplanted stem cells attacking other cells within the patient's body.
