Chitown35 - just checking in to see how it is going with you. I did have the r-atg treatment in fall of 2010, then the h-atg in January of this year. The treatments worked tremendously well, but then failed, the second after only 4 months. So I am going for a stem cell transplant now at MD Anderson, where I have been being treated for the aplastic anemia and original diagnosis of T-LGL. As I understand it once the two atg treatments fail, a transplant is really the only long term option. Can't say that I am happy about the statistics - apparently the aplastic anemia is cured in only 50% of the cases and the short term mortality (first 30-60 days) is around 15-20% in leukemia patients. I am guessing there are enough AA tranplants to have reliable statistics. I do have an exact sibling donor so that's a good thing.
No particular symptoms other than extreme fatigue and of course the hypocellularity in the bone marrow used to diagnose AA. White counts drop significantly and are supported by Neupogen, hemoglobing drops very slowly and my platelets are excellent.
