Drained for years
Foggy, tired, emotionally, and physically drained for years. Finally had some more productive years.
Fast forward to December 2020. Bloodwork came back skewed. DX - Myelodysplastic syndrome.No treatment yet, thank God.
Biopsies and treatment
But a recent bone marrow biopsy showed a slight progression in the disease. My Hematology Doc says I need another BM Biopsy to be a candidate for a clinical trial. Seems like he's getting ready to put me on chemo. I forget which one. But also possibly this trial chemo. He says, an effort to achieve remission.
I'm almost 67 and in good health otherwise. But I feel we're moving closer to an all-bone marrow transplant. Which scares the H_____ out of me.
Did you ask yourself "why me?" when you were first diagnosed with blood cancer?
