    If there is a emergency like auto accident, deep cuts etc. will MDS impair recovery? Would it be “deadly”? Or have no effect.thanks

    Hi Pat, Yes, especially if your platelets are low which can cause excessive bleeding to occur since the clotting function of platelets may also be abnormally affected in MDS (thrombocytopathy).
