You will need to think about the benefits and risks of this treatment carefully before you decide. It is important to discuss any questions you have with your cancer doctor. You will probably need some time to talk about it with family and close friends. Most units also have a nurse specialist, a transplant co-ordinator, a social worker or a counsellor who you can talk to.
Some people find it helps to talk to someone who has already had this treatment. Talk to the staff at the hospital where you are having your treatment.. You can also use Macmillan’s Online Community to meet people who are going through similar experiences to you.
