I am a 7 month post stem cell patient for Chronic Neutophillic Leukemia. Unfortunately the transplant has not irradiated the mutation. I have risidual disease that will be treated with chemotherapy or a stem cell infusion. Which would be better to start with. I have not had any complications and all blood atelets hemoglobin and white count has been good and stable.
