Low Iron & a Chromosome Abnormality

Hello to all of you kind people, willing to help each other. In my case, right now I need a hug.
Yesterday I had my monthly check with my Hematologist. My blood counts have been below normal for a year and a half now. At its lowest my haemoglobin was 89 and my feritin 2. I have had several blood transfusions to top me up as I tried the IV Iron and had a really bad reaction to it.
Had some genetic testing done (from my bone marrow biopsy and blood work) and it has shown I have a chromosome abnormality. More tests were done and now I am waiting for the results. I fear this is the start of somethng bad like cancer. Has anyone had any experience like this?

Hi sophie300,

Thank you so much for that wonderful HUG! It made me smile - it felt so good to know that a total stranger would take the time to send me a hug and support. I dont know your medical problems, but hope they are not serious and get ready - here comes a BIG HUG back at you.

Bless you for your kindness. I hope all will be well with you.
