Care required after stem cell transplant?
For the treatment of multiple myeloma, a relative has recently had a stem cell retransplantation (of her own cells). She is presently in the hospital for 2-3 weeks. After she comes home, she has been told she will need 24/7 care for 2 weeks. I have been asked to be a caregiver, and I'm wondering what type of care will be needed. Is it simply that someone has to be present? Or is there more to it? IVs? Anything like that? If anyone has any knowledge or past experience of this, I would appreciate hearing from you. I know everyone's case is different, but I'm thinking the general care required for this type of patient is going to be similar. Thanks.
