Dear friends,

How long does normally an untreated myelodysplastic syndrome patient survive ?

Re: Untreated MDS - Prognosis

Dr. Sunshine. I may have MDS. I posted on the cancer page. I am a 31 year old female with a history of low white counts. a recent bone marrow biopsy showed that I have an abnormal chromosome. This seem so rare please tell me more about you or your loved one. I want to know what to expect for my life. My doctor is talking bone marrow transplant. I feel this would be too risky since I have a pretty good quality of life. I get tired quickly and I'm underweight with a loss of appetite but generally I am well. I just wish to find someone who is in my situation so I can relate with them.
