Hi Katail S

I had pancytopenia for many years before MDS finally reared its ugly head, so I guess I just want to encourage you to hang in there. Like you I was monitored 3-monthly. Watch and wait is a bit scary at first but if you're able to live a pretty normal life you can get used to it! It sounds as though you know how to look after yourself with a healthy diet and exercise.

Just one suggestion - monitor your results yourself (I spreadsheet the pertinent ones) and always question any changes.

All the best ... I'll be watching for your posts!
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.
