Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with experience in treating all neurological and other medical conditions and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) in a patient with MM (Multiple Myeloma) is associated with a bad prognosis and a very high early mortality rate. Sorry to tell but majority of the patients, in one study 8 out of 9 died within 3 to 8 months after the diagnosis.
