I would like to know if the are any problems with becoming a PBSC donor for my sister. I am a Type 1 Brittle Diabetic of some 30 odd years and I was only approached about this yesterday (In Australia, Mon 4/3/13). I have read that the apheresis takes approx 4 - 6 hours, and the pre-meds can cause other reactions prior to donation. Would this cause problems for me as I tend to get very light headed sometimes just with the normal blood tests?
