An allogeneic stem cell transplantation is an intensive and demanding treatment for the patient.
Until the patient is discharged from the hospital, the focus of the patient and the treating health personnel is on the patient to survive the treatment. When the patient returns home, they often expect they will normalize along with their environment. However, many patients experience resuming their the normal daily life as diffucult after treatment. There are many causes for this, for example complications, GVHD, or fatigue. Many transplanted patients experience less energy during the day which may affect the entire family.
Close follow-up of stem cell transplanted patients is a central part of the treatment scheme.
