Acute myeloid leukemia and azacitidine
Hi, last year i was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Chemotherapy didnt work, so the hospital had me undergo a bone marrow/stem cell transplant. However i was told that i needed to have Azacitidine jabs every month for 12 months. What is the purpose of me having to go through Azacitidine jabs after i have already gone through a stem cell transplant? What happens if i don’t take the Aza jabs or stopped them after a few months? Will i have a relapse and die?
