Patient Testimonial for Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant

Testimonial by Mrs. Ekeh Ogechi Chioma Joedicta

Treatment for: Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia
Treated by: Dr. Ganesh Jaishetwar
Patient location: Nigeria

Hematologic malignancies, often known as blood cancers, develop when abnormal cells proliferate and multiply uncontrollably, interfering with the regular blood cells’ ability to produce more healthy blood cells and defend the body against harmful infections.

An allogeneic bone marrow transplant is a medical procedure to replace a patient’s damaged bone marrow with healthy cells from a compatible donor. The donor’s bone marrow is collected through aspiration, while the patient undergoes chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy to suppress their immune system. The healthy cells are then infused into the patient’s bloodstream and travel to the bone marrow where they grow and produce new blood cells. 

Recovery can be challenging, with side effects such as nausea, fatigue, and infection risk, and ongoing monitoring is required to ensure proper function of the new bone marrow. Despite the challenges, this procedure can be life-saving for patients with certain disorders.

Mrs. Ekeh Ogechi Chioma Joedicta underwent Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplant under the supervision of Dr. Ganesh Jaishetwar, Consultant Hematologist, Hemato-Oncologist & Bone Marrow Transplant Physician, Yashoda Hospitals.
