    Hi Tereze,

    To answer your original question I was turned down for a SCT. I went to the VA oncologist for an answer on my MDS RAEB2. I gave them ny test results. They agreed that my condition was critical. She said the waiting list for a transplant was so long that i would be dead by the time my number came up. I called the VA transplant center and was told I had to go through my local oncologist. I decided I did not to trust my life into the hands of these people. I had two transplant centers that were eager to do a transplant and I picked one of them.

    SCT is done after OC. Google stem cell transplant after ovarian cancer. Visit transplant centers until you find one creative enough to adapt to your needs. Find a cell donor.
