Generally, it takes around three months to recover from a bone marrow transplant, and the patient should stay 30-60 days in the hospital. The stay duration can be more or less depending on the patient's situation. After that, you have to visit the transplant center daily for several weeks, and various factors determine how long your recovery takes, such as your condition, a good donor match, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Your complete recovery might take a year when you are discharged from the hospital. You can resume your daily activities 3 months after the procedure. After the transplant, the risk of infection is very high, and you are more susceptible to bacteria and viruses during the first 6 weeks after the transplant. Antibiotics are suggested to reduce the risks of infection. You should immediately visit your doctor if you feel high temperature, unusual pain or swelling in the body, and blurred vision.
