Is it necessary to continue check-ups (I mean the regular blood and bone-marrow tests) after bone-marrow transplantation is over for an AML patient?

Hi Santosh, it is always better to keep in touch with the doctors even post bone-marrow transplantation is done. And in this case, I would personally request you to follow the check-up schedules as suggested by the doctors. These check-ups are really important as it helps you as well as your doctors to keep a track on the progress and also in detecting in any unexpected things.

Yeah, I agree with Lavanya. Dear Santosh, please don't ignore these tests. And yeah, one important thing you should know at the same time is that the duration of these tests might be increased or extended based on the patient's improvement. For one of my relatives, these tests were first recommended after every three months, but now he is asked to get these tests done once in a year. Hope, the patient you are talking about recovers soon.
