Hi! I live in Brisbane & had a BMT on the 6th of March this year at the Royal. I had MDS that progressed to AML. I, too have had many transfusions but about 3 weeks ago for the first time since I was diagnosed in feb 2012, all my blood counts were in normal range!!!! (Hgb has been sitting at 115 for 3 weeks now)!! Not sure about for AA but I did participate in the telephone forums for MDS run by the leukaemia foundation.
