I've said before I feel a bit of a fraud saying I have CLL, although the facts are there. I feel for all of you who have gone on to treatment or are nearing that stage, but I am currently feeling my own case is something about nothing really, too blasé?
My latest appointment was yesterday, no raised nodes or spleen issues. I do feel tired in the afternoon but I put that down to work! My previous appointment was 4 months ago. WBC was 21, lymphocytes 14.1. Yesterday’s results were WBC 20 and lymphocytes 14.6, so pretty much no change which is extremely good news. I’m wondering whether it maybe just one of those things whereby I’m lucky and will stay pretty much the same. Anyone have that experience or is it the case that it will keep rising albeit very slowly, or is there a point where it will suddenly take off? Difficult one I know as everyone is different, I suppose I have answered my own question there!
More worrying for me, I have never had a problem with blood pressure, but it was high at 150 over 100. I asked this to be checked as I had tried a friend’s electronic machine over Christmas which showed high, I reckoned the machine was faulty, but appears not. Need to see the GP to assess more, first available appointment at our surgery is 3 weeks time!
Next haemo appointment is now 5 months time. Woohoo, will be summer then!
