    Michael,
    Your response was very informative. I do realize that each case is quite different for each individual. Viewing the different topics in this forum I realized that right away! It is helpful to read how others are being treated and the different possibilities of treatment for MDS. Also to see some of the treatments others have that either help with the symptoms or fail to help. You are very knowledgeable about your disorder and I strive to learn everything I can to be able to support my husband and his decisions on his MDS. Thank you Michael for your response. I appreciated it.

    Thank you for your response.
    It is amazing how MDS has so many different variances as far as which cells are affected the most. One type is treated with medication for symptoms, while another is treated with blood transfusions. And at some point chemo for all of them. It’s hard to know what to do at times. Just trust!
    I wish you the best in your watch and wait and pray that all goes well for many years.
