What actually is a Stem Cell Top Up!
Hi there - would it be possible for people to share their understanding and / or experience of receiving a stem cell top up?
My husband is day +78. He had a positive start with all blood counts increasing as expected and he was 100% donor. But around day 35 he got RSV closely followed by EBV reactivation and then BK virus. His bloods stopped increasing and his chimerism dropped to 13% so we are now waiting for a ‘stem cell top up’. Luckily his donor is willing and able to give more cells.
We’re taking everything a day at a time but I’m just so worried.
