Hi everyone I’m new here my fiancé has acute myeloid leukaemia and was disganosed back in early June. The prognosis was good initially he’s young only 30 fit otherwise healthy. They did chemo and it went into remission twice and unfortunately relapsed and his leuekmia is now resistant to all chemotherapy. the doctors said the only hope is a stem cell transplant but there’s only a 10% chance it will be successful as my fiancé has to go ahead with the transplant with active cancer cells as his cancer is resistant to the chemo. he had the transplant and unfortunately has caught a viral and bacterial infection and he’s now in icu getting help to breathe. we find out the day after Christmas the bone marrow biopsy results and I am so afraid. Either the best news of our life it’s been successful, or the worst. And I am so very scared for the worst. But trying very hard to remain positive and trust in the universe. we have two small children 1 & 3 and we need him to get well and come back home to us we miss him terribly I guess just posting to see if anyone else has had a similar story? And did you make it? and just to share how terrified I am, but trusting too in the universe
