Hi Faye - I don't know anything about mistletoe being used for cancer. I investigated a lot of alternative cancer treatments when I was first diagnosed and I contacted various providers to see if they had had any success in treating MDS. Invariably the response was no. Some health retreats offer treatment which builds the immune system. The only positive was a hospital in Germany where they use complementary medicine along with conventional medicine, pre-transplant.

Sorry you're not feeling so well. I'm surprised your diagnosis is RCMD-RA if you have excess blasts. Normally excess blasts would put you into RAEB I or II. Have you just had a biopsy?
Dx MDS RAEB 10% blasts + hypogammaglobulinemia, Sep 2011. Jan 2012 BMB - blasts down to 2% w/out treatment so BMT cancelled. Re-diagnosis RCMD. Watch and wait from Feb 2012. IVIg 5-weekly. New diagnosis Oct 2019 AML 23% blasts in marrow, 10% blasts in peripheral blood.
