Are Transplants on the Decline?
Fortunately in the last few years, the monoclonal antibody drugs have surfaced as yet another option if remission isn't achieved. The risks are very low compared to transplants. Hopefully even more treatments will come out of research.
It makes me wonder if the number of transplants will decrease as we get more remissions from new treatments. 5% may seem low, but even in my treatment plan I had 2 second opinions to see if rolling those dice was the best option. As all our situations are different, it is always best to ask your medical team, maybe get a second or third opinion on the really big decisions. No good doctor will get upset if you ask for another opinion, as it is common in medical circles and it is your right to do so.
