My husband is a 30 yr survivor of testicular cancer which spread to his lymphatic system. He was given a 5% chance of survival with treatment. 30 years later we have found 1 Basel cell carcinoma, he has developed cardiomyopathy and 2 bad heart valves from all the chemo and radiation he had back then. Recently he has been diagnosed as being anemic. The doc did more blood work and then ordered a bone marrow biopsy. He has had a CAT scan and is otherwise healthy. I know it is a bit early to be worried but human nature leads us down the "what if" line of thinking. So what is next? What might we expect? Is it normal to order a bone marrow Biopsy for anemia?
Thanks for your time.
