When is a BMB needed? Earlier this month I visited my Onc. She said that my WBC has increased steadily for 2 yrs from 11 to 73 and that we may need to consider it. Although I was prepared to argue against it, I did not because she did not say specifically that it was time. When my CBC came back slightly lower, 68, the topic went away.
I am not asking about time to treat, just time to conduct BMB. I think we can treat, if needed, without first having a BMB and that we would use BMB to determine treatment effectiveness. Detailed blood work has already validated that I have CLL.
