Welcome, Peter. I'm glad you found us. I was also in my early forties and in otherwise good health when I was diagnosed--first with aplastic anemia and then with MDS. I too owe a lot to my PCP for being alert and sending me to a hematologist immediately.
I hope that you'll share your progress toward transplant with us and feel free to ask questions as they arise. We are here to help and support each other.
Diagnosed AA 10/96, MDS/RA 6/98, MUD/BMT 10/6/98
