Its been oficial one month since my ATG treatment. My immune system seems to slowly get better everyday. My WBC are at 7.0. My neutrophils are at 1.9. When I left the hospital a month ago they were around .4. My hemogloin went up for the first time ever without a transfusion on friday! I still have to get platlet transfusions, but Im hopeful that they will come around fast…i seem to make it a few days longer everytime. I have had no significant side effects to the medications. I am however VERY careful. I dont go in public and take my college courses from home with the help of my teachers. I had the capreting removed from my bedroom and had hard wood floors installed. My bedroom is considered the antibacterail room of the house. My mom washed everything I touch in antibacterial detergent. Therefore, I managed to avoid any infections. The doctors seem to think that my response is expected for my age (21). Im doing a lot better at home though than i did in the hospital for the 9 days I was quarrentined during my ATG treatment. (i only recieved ATG for 4 days however). If youre interested in more details about my experience with teh 3 drugs, you can email me too. carters@stolaf.edu
