Survivor's Ethan Zohn is going through exactly what I'm going through. Relapsed Hodgkin's, autologous stem cell transplant to come:
"Zohn says that both his red and white blood cell count will be brought down to zero during the month-long hospital stay – most likely in December – at which time his frozen, healthy stem cells will be reintroduced with the aim of replenishing his body entirely with non-cancerous cells."
I'm about two months ahead of him: in about 10 days I'll be going into the hospital for a month for my stem cell transplant, pressing that "reset" button on my immune system.
Read his story, which is essentially my story, here.
