Big decision and confused
I am just about to have a final third round of chemo before SCT which will be in a few weeks time at a different hospital. Following the secound round I was 100% in remission, but an flt3 marker indicates I will relapse sooner than later. I have had consults with the stem cell team twice now and the information has really confused me. The mortality rates for having and for not having SCT seem quite close.
I am coming up 68 yrs old and and am considering enjoying a few years (possibly) of good life now (without SCT) rather than going through the process and being 70 before I am fully recovered. As a musician and husband I want to enjoy life .
I would welcome any advice and clarification.
