Hi Samantha,
You don't write anything about your mother's counts or chromosome aberrations (if she has any). Many patients with low risk MDS only get supportive therapy like growth factors and transfusions.

Have you asked her dr why he will try more active treatment?
Kind regards
73 yo, dx MDS Interm-1 2006, transfusion dependent from dx, supportive therapy until 2010 when I started to take Thalidomide + Prednisone with positve effect.
