Have regular recommended screening!!
Report all “growths” or “lumps” to your doctor!
These are RARE!
You will be given medication to prevent!!!
But the preventive meds can ALSO have side effects!
And OTHER… SOB, Anemia, etc…
Pre-transplant prep with good exercise and eating habits can help control this!!!
Often things can be done to help reduce or eliminate side effects but you MUST tell someone! (include your transplant team)
