Hi everyone,
Following information from UK Government and the publication of NICE guidelines, we have updated our advice on the coronavirus for people who have received or are waiting to receive a stem cell transplant to treat their blood cancer or blood disorder. Read our coronavirus guidance here: www.anthonynolan.org/coronavirus

Hello All

I am recovering from AML, I had a anonymous stem cell transplant at The Christie in January 2014, I have had fairly mild gvhd and had PTLD in June which was pretty nasty but cleared up quite quickly. My blood counts are now normal without any artificial help.
If I can offer any help please contact me.
Robert Baxter


  • Hello Robert and welcome to the forum.
    By coincidence I'm sending this message from The Christie as I wait to be discharged. Just had two night stay with bad dose of flu! Going home with lots of antibiotics and anti virals.

    I was diagnosed with MDS early 2012 and had stem cell transplant from unrelated donor in May 2012 which has been a success. The main problems have been cold and flu like issues which don't go away without intervention.

    Pleased to hear from you and keep in touch, it's good to share experiences.

    Best wishes
  • I'm a 3x Bone Marrow Patient and diagnosed with MDS in 2009. Thankful that someone (Anthony Nolan! and others) is running a register!! And not forgetting the help and support from my specialist group - MDS UK Patient Support Group. The way those of us who've suffered a similar disease are able to help each other is amazing.
  • Thankful mine never progressed to your AML...
