Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, MDS and PRCA is very rare disease condition. Here idiopathically or in case of some genetic abnormality, the bone marrow fails to produce RBC and thus it causes anemia.

This anemia is refractory to any treatment. Depending upon the condition, Bone marrow transplantation is very much helpful.

Another treatment option is colony stimulating factors.

Lastly, you should keep following up with your treating doctor.
