MDS relapse..second transplant?
My Mum has recently relapsed after over 500 post SCT for high risk MDS. She is very well and fit otherwise.
The consultants are saying that Azacitidine would not work as one category of her blasts in her bone marrow are too high. They are now looking at other treatment options - more intensive chemo, second transplant, clinical trials at Kings.
Shell shocked at the moment, so any positive stories about second transplants or other drugs which can knock Mum back into remission from her MDS would be much appreciated.
