    HI to all, I was diagnosed with MDS Aug. 2015. Starting cycle 6 of Vidaza shots 7 March. WBC are 1.5, GRA at 0.7. My local oncologist gave me 1-2 years. Sent me to University of Chicago for second opinion. The did Blood tests, and another bone marrow biopsy, and told me same thing. 1-2 years. Getting another bone marrow biopsy in March. So its what to do if the Vidaza is not working. My blasts were 18% 6 months ago. If they are higher I may only have months left. I am 75 years old, and had a better life then most folks I am thinking. Perhaps there is something waiting for us on the other side..
