Comment from: Hanginthere1, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: September 12

I am just recently two years post stem cell transplant. I started having graft-versus-host disease symptoms that I realized were part of that, within the last year or so. I have graft-versus-host in my mouth, eyes, in the vaginal area, and my skin on my lower legs, with swelling and a painful leg ulcer. Plus, my joints are painful, and I have painful bowel movements. It seems very hard to get any help from various doctors, and I think I would not recommend a transplant to others.
