Has anyone else been diagnosed with MDS? (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) A side effect of MDS is chrinically extremely low platelets. My dad was diagnosed with MDS (mild) with 3.5% blasts in his bone marrow biopsy. His platelets are 10 now and we will be doing Nplate next, if needed. But that's for ITP and we are doing it. So I'm confused and just wondering if anyone else was diagnosed with MDS with super low platelets. Anyone else in the same boat?
