(This is my second attempt to post this - I think the first one went astray). I am nearly 68 and was diagnosed with CLL after a random blood test in April 2014. I consider myself fit and healthy so was surprised to be told that I had the highest WBC count my surgery had ever seen. I have other mild symptoms (lymph nodes in armpits and neck, enlarged spleen and slightly anaemic), but after the initial concern, things have remained stable, with WBC levels varying from 260 to 316, no infections or other obvious symptoms developing and so my W & W time has been extended to 3 months. I haven't had time to look at all the other blogs yet (I have only just discovered this website), but am wondering whether anyone else has had experience of high WBC levels.
