After your stem cell donation, we ask you to take part in a donor follow-up. This helps us to keep a close eye on your well-being. The first donor follow-up takes place four weeks after your stem cell donation. It consists of a blood test and a questionnaire. In particular, the following topics are covered:
- How did you feel before, during and shortly after the donation?
- How do you rate the organisation and care during and after the donation?
- Have your blood values returned to normal after the donation?
You will receive an email from us to inform you of the follow-up blood tests and ask you to complete an informed consent and short medical questionnaire. The blood draw for the blood tests will be performed at a pathology laboratory near you. The results of the tests will be reviewed by the Collection Centre doctor and any abnormal result will be referred to the DKMS Medical Director, who will be in contact with you. The follow-up tests are free of charge.
