Induction Chemotherapy treat MDS

I am in the high risk group MDSand have recently undergone a 6 month course of Acacytidine. Unfortunately depending on the results of my bone Marrow examination may be offered Induction Chemo, as have not got the desired results with Azacytidine. Platelets and Neutrophils are very low and I am Transfusion dependent. Hence this likely route.

Has any members of the Forum experienced or have knowledge of Induction chemo. If so I would be pleased to learn of their experiences.

I am 71 years old with no siblings so BMT has been ruled out by my local hospital.
