I had a bone marrow aspiration done last Friday (11/11) and it shows that there is something in my marrow that is adversely affecting my platelets, but the doctor’s aren’t sure what it is. It could be due to the fact that my donor and I were different blood types and my old blood type is fighting the new blood type. It could still be viral, but the virus is unknown if that is the case. It could be GVHD, (graft v host disease) but it isn’t presenting itself as such. Or, worst case scenario is that I’m rejecting my donor’s marrow. I’m being treated with heavier doses of IVIG (immunoglobulen [sp]) for the next few days.
I’ll keep everyone updated as I find out more.
