What is it like going through a bone marrow transplantation?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Intense regimen...: Typically bone marrow transplants completely destroy (ablate) your marrow, usually using a combination of intense chemo and radiation. The new marrow is infused by iv, and you must wait in hospital for these cells to repopulate your marrow (engraftment). Possible complications include infection and graft versus host disease (gvhd). You will spend alot of time in hospital and have close follow-up.
