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 the questionnaire directly after your donation from your contact person at the collection centre. In addition, you will receive a letter to your family doctor. This letter contains information that you will need to have a blood test four weeks after the stem cell collection and which blood values should be checked. Please return the completed health questionnaire - together with the results of your blood test - to the collection clinic. The clinic will only contact you again if, contrary to expectations, the findings from the follow-up are clinically relevant or if clarification is required.
