HSCT – Day 8 – Neck catheter insertion

On this last day of stem cell mobilization, they inserted a central venous catheter in my external jugular vein in my neck. The procedure is painless, and nothing to worry about.

You can take a look at the following video of how it went down.

Tomorrow they will use this catheter to harvest stem cells from my blood.

I want to add that the Russian medical staff is very talented and highly professional. I feel completely secure in their care. So if you have been worrying about stuff like this, and it’s holding you back from making the right decision – Get over it!
