Survivorship Guide for Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant
Adjusting to the New Normal
Figuring out how to incorporate the physical, emotional, and spiritual changes of the transplant into our lives is complicated and takes time. Often, our sense of who we are is challenged. We may need to discard some of the old notions that we had about ourselves, adjust some of our goals, and make some modifications to how we live. For some people, experiencing the new reality post transplant is extremely stressful. There is no easy template to deal with fear of recurrence, chronic health conditions, changed stamina, and changed perceptions of self. However, over time, a large majority of survivors do incorporate the changes of the transplant into their lives, and a new normal emerges.
