could no one else donate bone marrow?
#17 to #8 - rdobet (05/02/2013) [-]
suitable bone marrow donators are very rare.
User avatar #24 to #8 - shadowstrut (05/02/2013) [-]
Bone marrow donations are very specific I might say. The possibility of being a match for someone is extremely low and you most likely won't find one.
#138 to #8 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
It's incredibly difficult to find a match
#171 to #8 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
I'm thinks maybe it was a rare type?
User avatar #188 to #8 - gregy (05/02/2013) [-]
My neighbour got a donator after i think 5 - 7 years...5 days ago he went to switzerland to transplant... there is 50 % of success and 50% of him beeing paralysed for the rest of his life...he was a good guy and i just hope he will make it.
User avatar #225 to #8 - iggyblanco (05/02/2013) [-]
he was the only match in the national registry
#240 to #8 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
Actually finding a bone marrow match is extremelly difficult because each immune composition is unique, so if you are a "match" to someone it means you are close to the person but it can still kill the recipient. Thats why the donor tends to be a sibling more than parent, family member or stranger.
#82 to #8 - madome (05/02/2013) [-]
I've been waiting for over 8 years to get a bone marrow transplant.
If i find a match and he doesn't help me i'm ****** .
rare HLA type FTL

From what i read he was a perfect match and the guy did not have much time left if he didnt get it soon.

Bone marrow matches are more difficult to make than blood type matches.
If the body of the person who is receiving the marrow rejects it, they have a higher chance of infection or their own immune system attacks the transplant.

plus donating bone marrow is extremely painful and not very many people would go out of their way to do it.

anesthesia and painkillers are invented..?

#119 to #111 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
True but there is a limit to how much you can use, especially during bone marrow transplant. Meaning that even with anesthesia it is still EXTREMELY painful.
#162 to #119 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
sounds like typical urban myth
User avatar #127 to #119 - epicburana ONLINE (05/02/2013) [-]
How is that possible? I mean you aren't even conscious when under anesthesia... When I was in surgery, it was a pitch black moment in my memory, like I didn't even exist during that time. How could you possibly feel any pain then?
User avatar #172 to #127 - alexleukaemia (05/02/2013) [-]
bone marrow is taken when conscious and only local anesthetic, if they miss the where they placed the local, it kills.
it's over rather quickly though.

had 3 bone marrow biopsy's
#203 to #172 - mitchimusk (05/02/2013) [-]
The local anesthetic only helps the nerves under the skin and the skin itself. It doesn't help the pain from the needle entering the bone.

User avatar #204 to #203 - alexleukaemia (05/02/2013) [-]
it does help though, I've had them miss before and it hurt so much more

Well sir I'm glad to hear that. My chemo was done for a few weeks then last Friday I got a petscan on which something lit up. So I had a surprise round of chemo this week, then final radiation in a few weeks. I'm glad to hear you're doing well. If you don't mind my asking, do you live in the states and if so where?
User avatar #215 to #206 - alexleukaemia (05/02/2013) [-]
I had a set back 3 weeks ago too, some leukemia cells managed to get to my brain so have been having radiation the last 2 weeks, last one tomorrow though. But i'm not too worried
I live in London, England, where are you from?

Hearing You Two discuss your cancer really makes me feel like my problems really dont matter
#338 to #310 - mitchimusk (05/03/2013) [-]
See that isn't true. A lot of people at school have said things like that but the truth is, everyone experiences different pain. Before my being diagnosed I felt like my problems didn't matter, but post-diagnosis I realized that those things strengthened me for what was going to come. All pain callouses and makes us stronger people

...... I was just complaing to someone that I cannot buy equipment to grow vegetables inside, because it would look like Im growing pot...I dont even grow plants of any kind, I was complaining about a social stigma that doesnt involve me at all

#197 to #192 - Loopholes (05/02/2013) [-]
Actually wearing a condom while committing rape is good for both parties, you leave no evidence in your victim.   
   
So there you go kids, always wear a condom when committing rape.

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

The reason a lot of Asians have completely expressionless faces is so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO KNOW THIS!!!!!

He's still an awesome guy for giving up the chance either way, and he's twice as awesome because he's making the sacrifice of going through a lot of pain for a complete stranger to live.

Athletic career or not, he's a really good person for donating.
#9 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
Well, that's fake as hell. You can continue playing sports even after a bone marrow donation, you have just to rest a bit after it, and suspend the normal activities for 1-2 weeks before the donation.
#44 to #9 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
he was in track and field or something and he cant lift more than 20 pounds over his head though. thats what cnn says
#123 to #9 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
But...what if the bone marrow donation was WITHIN 2 weeks of the championship? I mean is something like that even possible?
#330 to #9 - anon (05/02/2013) [-]
I am currently enrolled at UNH and know of this story. This is completely 100% true. There is even an event next Monday at UNH which is essentially a "marrow drive" except its just where students are encouraged to go to get tested to see if they can be a suitable donor, which I'm going to as well.

championship games get scouted out by the NFL teams.
he was probably a senior. there's no more season after the championship buddy. and i'm pretty sure he can't play college football for the rest of his life. that's probably what they were implying.
#125 to #9 - yogurtcup (05/02/2013) [-]
Be logical about this. obviously the person with leukemia was dying, and needed bone marrow asap. The competition definitely had to be very soon after the operation would have been. In turn, he would be too weak to compete. It didn't say he was left disabled or anything like that, man...

User avatar #21 to #9 - rtbellboy (05/02/2013) [-]
Apparently when it came up that he would have to give marrow, he had two meets left and in the time period of his recovery he would miss them. They were the last two meets of his entire career and one was the America East Championship. So yes he will be able to return to normal but not soon enough to compete again.

I find it interesting how all the people below are saying "why the hell would you do that?"   
   
Maybe saving someones life was more important to him than sport, which he'll probably play in next year anyhow, if not for the fact he's clearly fit enough to do it, then for the publicity the event/team would get for that.   
   
Maybe thats it, maybe he's not just stupid?

see post #42 : " championship games get scouted out by the NFL teams.
he was probably a senior. there's no more season after the championship buddy. and i'm pretty sure he can't play college football for the rest of his life. that's probably what they were implying."

if he was aiming for pro, that was pretty much his last chance. Not a lot of people out there who would sacrifice his life dream for a complete stranger
User avatar #124 to #117 - eddymolly (05/02/2013) [-]
He'll probably just get another year or something, or a pro team will give him a tryout for publicity. All i'm saying is, it will probably help him in the long run because of people wanting him for there publicity, he'll be ok, plus he saved someones life...

Yeah i was going to link the article but it wouldn't allow me. After donating it says you cant lift heavy weight for 2-3 weeks, apparently his championship was over by then. The guy needed the marrow soon he had a rare form of leukemia.

Exactly. He'll be back into shape easily in a few months, then do it again next year, with massive publicity, so there was nothing wrong with doing it. In fact, it will probably help his career if anything

The true question is; why didn't someone who hadn't been training 8 years of his life for a tournament offer his bone marrow so two people could be happy, and not affect another one's lifelong goal in the way.

I don't find this good news at all, I find it sad the best must give more than they should because the mediocre and worse find themselves to be too good.
