Hi it's my first post about this subject so here goes. My mum was diagnosed with AML in feb, she's 73 and was admitted immediately and had a cycle on intensive chemo and was in hospital for 5 weeks.
During the cycle she has lots of platelet problems mainly them being extremely low
Some days her count was zero. The doctor decided to put her on azacitadine. Even this well tolerated chemo gave her problems
With her platelets and it was decided to stop chemo altogether.
The AML had gone into remission and her last chemo was may 12th
I'm Told this will come back has anyone got any experience like this. She was originally given 18 months in feb,but now there's no more chemo that tine is cut dramatically
thank you for any advice
