That sucks, really hope he gets better!
I dont know if you actually read the news, but things are looking grim, to say the least.
Since its too late for chemotherapy and that he needs a marrow transplant, they evalutated his chance of survival at 10%
but my sis-in-law is a doctor, and it would more likely be around 2 %
People, unless a miracle happens, we've seen and heard the last from Behemoth
still, best of wishes Nergal
shit man... 2 - 10%!!
this sucks... best wishes!!!
edit: i read in blabbermouth "he is on his first round of chemotherapy"... maybe its not too late
This sucks I beg he recovers, best wishes from me to.
I was waiting so much to see them at the summerbreeze ....
best wishes !!
Well, as far as I know, transplantation can be successful if the immunity system recognize the donor's cells as his own cells (the reciever's cells) (not stranges cells and then attack them). Siblings' (brother/sister) cells usually have a similar HLA combination (with slight differences in the structure that can be tolerated) so if he finds a matching donor, he has a great chance of surviving! Risks of relapse depend on too many things like the quality of the donor's cells, the type of leukemia, environment, his will to heal and so on. According to the newest researches transplantation works in 22-32 % of the cases.
Your sis-in- law is a doc but I would rather believe in my version
they mentionned something like 10% for him, but then again, at first they told that it was too late for chemotherapy but after I heard that he begun the first chemotherapy stage??
I dont know a lot about leukemia but some articles I found on the net about Nergal's disease are confusing. Journalists like to exeggerate.
They're not looking for a DNA match (there's no such thing, every human being has his own DNA combination) , it's the HLA (Human leukocyte antigens) like I already explained.
From the things I know,his chances to survive are good if he finds a donor. Chemoterapy is not a cure.
I have a feeling a lot of Behemoth fans will donat e their marrow in order to help.
No matter what, I wish him all the best and hope he will get better
Wow, this sucks. Behemoth is so not ready to be over with. We sure better hope for a miracle.
Mentally as strong as ever the sob
"BEHEMOTH's Leukemia-Stricken Frontman Finds Bone Marrow Match!"
YAY!! That's awesome news! Thanx to that person!
awesome! Go Nergal
but....if he recovers...will he be back at 100%?
in other words, is Behemoth dead?
I would say, NOT dead...
Him recovering could give some new inspiration. Maybe something like silence before the storm?
May take some time to get to that 100% mark, but I think he will be able to do it.
This may be wishful thinking on my part, but I'm rooting for him and the band.
