I am curious to know what signs, symptoms, or tests results appear for MDS to require treatment or transplant. Did you feel ill enough to know or did a test result show the change? Also what is the longest someone has lived on watch and wait, years or decades with MDS?
Thank You for sharing Brenda

Brenda, I moved your recent post to your existing discussion about living with MDS (myelodysplastic syndromes). You're asking great questions. I'm tagging members @lorieafoote @smetzing @jrwilli1 @nbadry @rrivory @honeymae who can share their experience with treatments and what tests or symptom changes led to their needing a change in treatment or how long they've been on watch and wait.

I'm sure you've read this already, but just in case, here is info from Mayo Clinic about diagnostic testing and treatment https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/myelodysplastic-syndrome/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20366980
