Bone marrow transplant
Replace diseased, nonfunctioning bone marrow with healthy functioning bone marrow
Bone marrow is the soft, spongy center of your bone where blood is produced. Most people who need to undergo a bone marrow transplant have cancer, such as leukemia or lymphoma. There are different types of bone marrow transplants. The type and severity of your disease determine what type of transplant you will need. How the bone marrow functions Bone marrow is the soft, spongy center of your bone where blood is produced. Marrow is filled with blood-producing cells, called hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs), which develop into mature white blood cells, red blood cells, or platelets. White blood cells of various kinds make up part of your immune system for fighting infections. Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen throughout your body. Platelets clot your blood to prevent bleeding. HPCs are constantly being produced by your bone marrow, and will develop into the types of cells your body needs. HPCs are sometimes called stem cells. Pre-transplant evaluation Before a blood or marrow transplant can be approved as a treatment option, you will have a pre-transplant evaluation. This evaluation includes a complete physical, consultations with members of the Transplant Team, and a comprehensive series of tests. A pre-transplant evaluation provides complete information about your overall health and helps determine if you are eligible for a blood or marrow transplant. If you are to be admitted to the hospital for your transplant, you can expect your stay to be about 3 to 4 weeks, depending on your recovery. During your recovery, you will learn about your new medicines, how to recognize signs of complications and infections, and when you can return to your normal activities.
