Format: Paperback
People who have told me how helpful this book is are right! It explains the procedures so that those who aren't medical professionals can understand them. It explains how to understand test results, much of what the transplant patient will go through, and how to deal with the side effects and ramifications. It even offers suggestions of ways to help out patients and their caregivers and family!
I have never seen a more comprehensive, down-to-earth book about this subject. My friends and I strongly recommend it.

This book should be required reading for healthcare providers prior to working with transplant patients. As a healthcare provider, I found the information in this book to be invaluable in explaining the transplant process. This book covers all aspects of the patient's experience from diagnosis through coming home and the post-transplant years.

I read this book and then mailed it to my brother who was about to have a BMT. I was his donor. It helped us prepare for a most difficult decision and time. I would urge any BMT patient to read this book and others like it.

My best friend had a bone martow transplant and this book was extremely helpful. I read this and others before hand and all though it is a little old it was still very relevant. It gave me a better understanding of what was coming. Although she didn't read any of them I was able to answer her questions about what was normal and what wasn't. It is helpful for caregivers and patients. It is simply written which is hard to find when it comes to medical procedures. I would recommend to anyone who needs a little guidance in this area.

As someone who has been through a blood stem cell transplant, I can not emphasize enough how helpful and informative this book was. I was fortunate to have "found" it before the procedure and it provided me with information that not only helped me make informed decisions, but also went into enough detail so I understood how I was going to benefit from a transplant and what I was going to go through.

I consider this must reading for anyone facing this medically and emotionally complex process.

Although the title suggests this guide is for patients only, family and friends of patients will find the guide insightful, useful and enabling of support in ongoing contact with a patient. This guide to a difficult and complicated subject is well-written and thorough, yet simply and clearly explained. References are broad, offering many more helpful resources. Definitely a guide for patients, their families, and their friends.
