I would agree with Connie. If her counts are holding, especially if she comes off her medication, I would not proceed with a BMT unless you really have to. BMT’s carry their own set of trade-off and problems. And as with Aplastic Anemia, secondary diseases are a possibility even with a BMT. And yes it’s true that you can relapse if you just do ATG, but you also have take into consideration the long term complications that may arise from a BMT.

Best of Luck….Marlene
