Yeah, technology is amazing. It has to be said though that apheresis is boring and it's very difficult to piss during the process which can take upwards of 6 hours. The tube sucking all your blood out is kind of gross. Of course these are minor things! But still!

I also have hodgkin's lymphoma and just got my own auto transplant last month. Still haven't got a scan yet. What staging were you at when you went in to the transplant? My chemo before transplant was actually working well, but because mine was relapsed they still do a transplant. Did you get BEAM?

Damn, they let you go home? I wasn't allowed to leave my hospital ward for 20 days. :(. Were you getting mini-Beam?

Most needles don't bother me, but the rigid stainless steel large gauge they use for the out-line in apheresis was pretty gross and uncomfortable for me. Did you have to give a bone marrow sample prior to this? Because that is truly the worst thing ever.
