Yea, they really drain you. This one is probably the one where they test you for every know disease you can think of to see if you have already had it or not, cytomegalovirus, epstein-barr, mononucleoses, ad naseum!

Later, after you are on the list, they will do another huge blood draw testing for antigens for matching. I think on one of the draws from me they took 27 tubes!

It has been over 5 years since my transplant. Hope you are successful and all goes well for you.

Fingers crossed :-)
