Blepharoplasties are a long process that often take months or years, depending on the severity of the infection.
The first stage is when a bone marrow donor is removed from the body, while the second is when the body produces antibodies against the cancerous tumor.
A blood transfusion is used to maintain the immune system.
Once the tumor is removed, the bone marrow can be extracted, the antibodies neutralized, and the body begins the second stage of the cancer recovery.
The bone marrow will need to be stored at room temperature for several weeks before the bone can be used to help rebuild the body.
The recovery process can be extremely difficult, with recovery times of as long as two years.
A second stage involves taking a blood transfuse to maintain a person’s immune system, and then a bone-marrow transplant to replace damaged bone marrow.
The patient will need the blood transfused once every three months for a year or more to stay on track.
A third stage involves a blood transplant that replaces the lost immune system and brings a person back into the normal range of activity.
The fourth stage involves the bone-thinning surgery called a biopsy.
The biopsy can be done as soon as the patient is discharged from the hospital, although the process can take a long time.
A fourth stage is often required for patients with cancer that is already on the way out of remission, meaning they are at an advanced stage of disease and are still receiving chemotherapy.
