Tina,
When was her last bone marrow biopsy? Didn't they do one at Hopkins when you saw Dr. Brodsky? It is critical that you have an accurate diagnosis. AA and MDS look very similar so you need to know for sure what it is you have because the treatments are different. I know that AA can progress to MDS but I'm not sure the statistic on it. Is there any reason for them to suspect MDS vs SAA? Hopkins did John's BMB to confirm AA before undergoing High Dose Cytoxan.
