    My 56 year old husband was recently diagnosed with MDS. I am not entirely sure of the genetic breakdown. We have only been in this for a month. I know his is medium aggressive.

    My husband was allergic to Penicillin as a boy and tells doctors when asked. I say this, because it I may have read there is a increased allergy to Sulfa based drugs. Over the years he has been prescribed many antibiotics. I know though over the last year he has massive doses of Sulfa based antibiotics, his blood levels began to decrease. None of the doctors seemed to take notice. He had several hospitalizations and I knew something was wrong, but no one investigated any further. I have read how severe sulfa allergies can (in rare cases) cause blood issues, including aplastic anemia.

    I may just be reaching for some reason my that husband has been diagnosed with this terrrible disease, but if there is even a remote chance that this is somehow related to antibiotics allergies, I want the information to get out so it doesn’t maybe have to happen to others.
