Smile No, CBC not normal

Thanks for the quick response Neil,
My last CBC (Feb2011) was as follows:
Hb 10.8g/dl
RBC 3.3 x10^12l
PCV 31.2%
All the other counts are either in the normal range or very close. My blood counts have been about like this for the last year. In fact, they have improved a little from 6 months ago.
I'm not sure if my current condition requires treatment. If not, I will just keep watching and wait until I experience problems. I don't want to miss a chance to slow the progress of this.
My doctor has not recommended anything except Erythropoietin (EPO). I think this will just increase RBC and not really treat MDS. I will be seeing my doctor next week. Would decitabine or azacitidine be possible drugs that would delay progress?
Thanks,
John
