now I'm even more confused & I don't see the Hemayolgist until mid-Aug. I went online & found out some test results from the new Hematologist who redid everything (blood work):
1) beta 2 is high
2) "CD38 expression is dim heterogeneous.
ABNORMAL CELL IMMUNOPHENOTYPE:
(+) CD5, CD19, dim CD20, CD23, dim heterogeneous CD38, dim kappa
(-) CD10, FMC7, lambda, other T-cell markers "
I've never heard the words dim or lambda or heterogeneous or fmc7 used in my results before....
Can anyone explain what any of this means besides a confirmation that I do indeed have CLL?
