My mother in law was diagnosed with CMML at 68, they were late with the diagnosis and now she is 70. Her main complaint is low to no energy and feeling sick with bad taste buds just before her next blood transfusion. Her blood goes down to 70, she has low red blood cell count. We have been offered no other treatment but transfusions here in Ontario due to her age. I have never talked to anyone who knows anyone with CMML. We are alone and live in a small town with small doctors with limited knowledge. We will take her wherever we can in Ontario. Does anyone have any advice?
