My son is getting his 6th and final induction round of chemo this week, which means we are one month out from stem cell transplant. My husband and I went back and forth on whether to do the transplant in the beginning (based on MSKCC research), but we know we don't want any regrets and will do it. I know every transplant experience is different, but I would love some advice on what got your child through and what to expect. Jackson is 18 months today, and very active. He's done really well with chemo and his last scan showed no signs of his NB tumor, except a slightly enlarged lymph node (which Dr. believes could be scar tissue or an overcompensating node since it was 4 weeks post-surgery and lots of nodes were removed).
