Following my diagnosis 17th June 2015, I have an appointment to see my hematologist on Wed 19th Aug 2015. This will be my first appointment since being advised of CLL, I have had my bloods taken approx 6 weeks ago for a genetics test, which I'm guessing I will be advised of the results on 19th.
I really cannot face reading material and some posts, but I want to know more about where I am and going to be in what ever time period. I have been advised that approx 30% of people diagnosed don't ever need treatment, I hope I'm in this bracket, so will my genetics test tell me that?
I know some of 'our family' look out for WBC numbers, others lymphnodes, some ALC...All very confusing especially when you are too frightened to read up on anything as I am and have been doing.
Overall, Please can you advise me on;
1) What I should ask?
3) What does it all mean?
Thanking you in advance to any replies and I will no doubt update you all following my appointment.
