Some of you may have received a text message from NHS Coronavirus Service about ‘shielding’ (staying home for 12 weeks). NHS England wants to ensure no-one at high risk of coronavirus misses its vital health advice. As a result, some patients who are not at high risk have also received that text message.

Minimal Residual Disease after transplant
My husband had a bone marrow transplant in January & the first bone marrow biopsy result done on day 30 has shown minimal residual disease of 0.2. We spoke to my husband's consultant yesterday & he said 'it's not good' but didn't elaborate. He the reduced my husband's immune suppressant drugs. How bad is 'not good'? I'm so utterly confused and stressed by all this.
