Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
Treatment of aplastic anemia is very difficult. You can give external red cell concentrate and platelets as symptomatic maintenance therapy. However it will not cure the disease. Permanent treatment is only bone marrow transplantation. For that you have to search HLA matched donor. It is the only permanent treatment available. It is very costly. So planout accordingly.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. Wish you a very good health.
