No, CBC not normal
Thanks for the quick response Neil,
My last CBC (Feb2011) was as follows:
RBC 3.3 x10^12l
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?
