Beth had a routine bone marrow biopsy on Tuesday — we’re about six months out from the transplant now. We heard some of the results of that test today — not everything is in yet, but what they did get is showing no recurrence of the disease. That puts the odds of relapse (which started off at about 35%) down to below 10%.
Initial odds weres something like this:
- 30% cure;
- 20% immediate complications;
- 15% major longer-term complications;
- 35% chance of relapse.
We had lots of “intermediate” complications to be sure, if we keep going like this, we’ll reach that “cure”.
