Would EPO helps in chemotherapy and Stem Cells Transplant?

0 like 0 dislike
I am going to be getting autologous Stem Cell transplant. Before transpanting the stem cells, high doses of chemotherapy will be given to me. My immune system will shot down to 0. All will white and red blood cell will wipe out. Because of this, the doctor was talking about transfusion. Because my religious reasons I refused.  He got mad and  refused to do the transplant until I decide to accept the transfusion. What can I do? Will the (EPO) erythropoietin helps me?
