Bone Marrow Test tomorrow

Min Ser has been discharged from SJMC. Result from today's EUS (endoscopic ultrasound) tissue samples are not out yet, but according to our doctors, the swelling seems to have lessen, and it does not appear to be an infection or tumour like. Which is good to know. Though it still does not explain what has caused the swelling. Thus a more comprehensive biopsy result should help.

So... based on the process of elimination, that would leave GVHD (graft versus host disease). Which is not unlikely to happen, and according to our haematologists, some GVHD is not a bad thing.

But before we start treating for GVHD, Min Ser will be undergoing a bone marrow test tomorrow at Ampang Hospital. This will be his 4th bone marrow test post transplant. If this BMT + today's biopsies from the EUS rule out a relapse, then the doctors can focus on treating for GVHD.

All in all, it's been a long week in hospital, but glad that we are coming closer to treating the problem. As usual, praying and hoping for the best!
