Usually, you will receive your new cells a day or two after the preparation treatment is completed. The donated cells are delivered in blood bags, as when donating blood. Cord blood donations are smaller.
The cells in the bag are delivered to your body through a vein, like a blood transfusion. You are awake while taking the donated cells, there is no surgery in the transplant process. The donated cells know where they belong to "where" in the body. Your blood flow acts to settle in the bone marrow in the worker. It is where the donated cells grow and produce new red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
