Hi everyone, just thought I would post an update on my axillary node biopsy. The results showed that there was no evidence of RT in my lymph node. This good news was quickly followed by a warning that just because it didnt show up in the axillary node it didnt mean that that the richters hadnt returned as apparently doesnt show up in every node ! This left me feeling very unsure, relieved but still worried...certainly the news did not give me the peace of mind I was hoping for. My consultant mentioned that I may have yet a other bone marrow test to see how much the cll has risen in my marrow and that it may show up richters but then again only if it is in my marrow ! I rang the hospital to find out when my bone marrow aspirate is to be told that it was decided at the MDT meeting that in fact the aspirate may not be useful and so I am to have a PET scan. I see my consultant later this week and will update my post. Best wishes everyone xx
