Dears,
My father is suffering from Hemolitic anemia and MDS. he is 70 years old. he has been on Vidaza treatmnet for 3 months (3 cycles achived). the only improvement he showed is that he didnt need for the past month only, any blood or paletets. but the paletets count did not increase. my quetion is shall we proceed with Vidaza treatment for 6 or 9 months as i read on several websites? or since he didnt show any improvements means he is not responding to Vidaza and shall be stopped? please advise.. and if any other alternative please advise also.
thank you
Regards

What has his doctor advised?

When it comes to such a serious medical condition, the best and safest approach is to follow the advice and instructions of a medical professional.
