Transfusing up to above 10 can help stop the growth of masses. As long as your Hb is so low, your body will continue to create these masses. Surgery is usually reserved for when the masses pose a danger to organs or the spine, and even then, transfusion should be tried first.

All we are saying is give thals a chance.
