Question about Bone marrow Biopsy

I am a 48 year old female. Six years ago I was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome since than I have been treated on a regular basis for this. I was diagnosed by Bone Marrow Biopsy six years ago.
Now six years later I have had another Bone Marrow Biopsy done by a different Hematologist and it came back completely normal, it was sent to Cytogenetics to check for colonal abnormality such as Refractory Anemia. This test came back normal as well.
After talking with the doctor he says that the new bone marrow is not consistant with blood test results over the six years and wants to go with original diagnosis of Myelodysplastic Syndrome.
My question is doesn't this seem real unusual to have a completely normal biopsy with every other test showing different?
I appreciate any help I can get with this problem. Thanks in advance.

Re: Question about Bone marrow Biopsy

Maybe you were misdiagnosed the first time. Maybe the second biopsy is in error? The real test would be how do you feel?

Re: Question about Bone marrow Biopsy

Thank you for your reply! I have been still feeling unwell and have frequent anemia thats why I thought the results of second bone marrow were unusual. Even the hemotologists said that it did not match the blood test results.
Any ideas?
