Stage 1 Patient
Hi all. I decided to go straight to the Red Cross and the local Community Blood Center to find out what they had to say.
The CBC says it's 10 years cancer-free.
The Red Cross, however, says it's 12 months from date of last treatment or surgery if you remain cancer-free with no recurrence. That applies to all cancers except cancers of the blood or lymphatic system.
For more info, you can call 866-236-3276, option 3 for eligibility
I also asked about the question of using a blood pressure cuff on the arm, because I know I can't have one on the right for X number of years, and I haven't found out yet about my left. She did say that you need to have at least one arm available.
I hope this helps.
