I have been on W and W since 2007. Visits to Consultant gradually moved to annual which I was pleased about. I went on Friday for this check to find my blood result had gone up 30 over the year. Usually I only increase by 8 or 9. My Consultant was concerned and also told me my platelets are high are 400, she has never found a problem with them before. Couldn't find anything alarming when she examined me,, just the usual smallish lumps in my neck that go up and down. I have had a chest infection fluish type bug for the last 2 weeks, been really poorly and Friday's appointment was the first time I had been out for 2 weeks, she did wonder if that had had an affect on the blood. But she did talk to me about treatment, usually she says she hopes I won't need it but now she says I will but not at present and wants to see me in 6 months. I am very scared, the thought of chemo I find terrifying. I have been ill all winter with many colds and sinusitus but that seems normal for me for winter and I get very tired, have to paced myself.
