This week I had a bone marrow aspiration done to see how effective the new chemo from two weeks ago was. The result showed a slight increase in % of cancer ( from 0.1% to 0.4%). The doctor said that although this is a bit higher, he considers it unchanged (from a clinical standpoint). The goal still is to get the cancer to zero before transplant and the doctor concluded that the last chemo was not effective enough. So, he is starting me on Monday with a 5-day hospital stay to received stronger chemo. I'll be at the UW Hospital this time.
