Seven years and counting

Post by melionen » 07 Jul 2013 22:15

Hello everyone. My name is Martin and I would like to say hi to you all and to let you know there can be hope and happiness. I was diagnosed with mds 10 years ago and was given 4 years to live. after many many many transplants of blood platelets magnesium and so forth I was given a donor. my stem cells were no good to harvest so I had to have a MUD. I was very lucky with my treatment and my 100% positive attitude I pulled through. I am still on loads of meds because of the MUD but its a small price to pay to live. I have learned a lot since my treatment and would love to here form anyone that has been or is going through it.

Thanks for looking best regards

Just wanted to say thank you for posting Martin. My husband was diagnosed with MDS earlier this year and it's the positive stories that are keeping me going at the moment. I hope that you stay well and continue to have many more healthy and happy years ahead. Thanks again, Emily.
