I have MDS

Hi Sarah

I live near Rockhampton and have MDS which has affected my red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Since last Oct I've been dependent on transfusions (red blood cells) usually every 4 weeks. I am under a heamatologist who comes up here from Brisbane. I am on Exjade for Iron overload because of the transfusions. I am 58.

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.
