Kind of silly question, Stem cell transplant and tattoos
I had a stem cell transplant 6 months ago for Multiple Myeloma. I am 33, female (yeah way off from the average MM patient). I was stage II at diagnosis, had 4 rounds of velcade/ dex then had stem cell collection and my transplant. After my transplant I had "very good response" but still detectable m-spike. Several months ago I achieved remission with no M- spike detectable. My blood levels are good, and low normal range. I've had low white count but it's getting better. My question is I want to get a tattoo with a girl friend over the holidays. I don't see my doctor until January. Am I still imune compromised? I am not on any medications at the moment, and not taking any maitenence chemo or steroids.
