    While I feel like this book is important for anyone experiencing someone going through a BMT, I found that little of it pertained to me, and possibly, very little will pertain to anyone else but this guy This is not a bad thing Though I was hopeful going into it, the thing that I brought away from this story is that everyone s experience is going to be pretty different It s like death, or self help books, or Cat Vs Cat, not everything is going to pertain to a large generic audience, or be a fool [...]

    One Hundred Days is a raw and honest account of a physician s experience as a transplant patient Mr Biro, a well connected physician, makes no secret of the special perks he receives because of his privileged status But not even unlimited access to specialists or a presidential suite at the hospital can curb the physical and mental anguish he suffers in transforming from a person who s had than his share of luck and good health, to a very sick patient dependent on those around him At 31 years o [...]

    It is always fascinating to read a doctor s perspective on situations where they find themselves on the receiving end of medical care In this case, Biro is a dermatologist and therefore is as unfamiliar with his diagnosis as I suspect the average patient would be However, he has the support of many collegues in the medical world, including his father, and finds 2 doctors who are among the tops in the world at treating his rare condition In the end, he is faced with a difficult choice in treatmen [...]

    One Hundred Days is the story of a doctor who becomes a patient when he contracts a rare blood disease It s a very interesting story He gets a rare blood disease that causes his platelets and blood count to drop He could take medication, but it wouldn t cure it He decides to have a bone marrow transplant His sister is a match and donates it to him This is an instance of the treatment being as hard as the disease The only symptom he had before deciding on the transplant was fatigue The treatment [...]

    I really did enjoy reading about a young doctor facing an illness that could very likely kill him The problem I have with this is the constant whining about 2 3s of the way through the book He went through a lot but I have as well and I never felt sorry for myself I felt blessed to be healthy again Oh well.

    fast read, young doc comes down with rare disease requiring bone marrow transplantinteresting medically as a primer on that process, which while horrific for david, the doctor patient, is medically intriguing interesting socially as he tries to deal, his loner wife tries to deal, his overly involved jewish family tries to deal

    I d suggest everyone read this book We hear so much about bone marrow transplants that we have no clue what the receipients of the treatment encounter This is an eye opener, for sure.The author does tend to be a little self pitying, but that s not surprising.

    this is a great book for meical professionals caring for patients that receive bone marrow stem cell transplants no, this has nothing to do with cloning as a caregiver you often wonder how things are seen through the eyes of the patient.

    Everything you want to know about bone marrow transplants, from a recipient s point of view It helps that the recipient is a physician, the son of a physician, and an aspiring author If you want to know about the donor s end, I ll tell you.
