hypoplastic MDS

Bobbye, my husband also has hypoplastic MDS. He was originally diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, but the diagnosis changed after a year or so when they found a chromosomal mutation. Otherwise it remains the same and the treatment has been the same (ATG/cyclosporine).

It's been 3 years now and he's currently stable and has a normal life. His neutrophils have never gotten down to really dangerous levels, although they remain lower than normal. I'm sure there are plenty of people here who do have some experience with neutropenia, though. If you have any specific questions, this is the place to ask them. It's hard to know how to help without some more information.
