will i be able to become a doctor after having a bone marrow transplant?

    • Thread Starter

    I am worried I will never be able to become a doctor or study medicine after my bone marrow transplant because I will have a weak immune system after. Do I just give up on my dream?

    I think you should keep going!! Eventually your immune system will recover (it will take a few years though) and you will feel better

    I am waiting for a transplant myself but it's not too priority at the moment, but I've read about it and what happens after
    Is there someone at your hospital (like a teacher/support worker) you can talk to for guidance??
