Phase 5: The Follow-Up Period
Following all types of transplants, we give patients detailed instructions and arrange for home-care services, if needed. If you live outside of the St. Louis area, lodging near the hospital is available for your convenience during the recovery process.
You will be referred back to your oncologist for ongoing care following the transplant. You are monitored closely by the transplant team during the first year after transplant, with specific recommendations regarding post-transplant care and re-immunizations. We follow all patients, particularly those receiving allogeneic transplants, for many years after their transplant.
