Help me out?? Diag. in October 2015 with CLL. Had blood work on 6-2-16. at that time blood work highlights were WBC 19.2, RBC 4.22, HB 12.1, Platelets 244, percent lymphs 54%, ALC was 7500. Plan was watch and wait. Six trips to dr and as of 6-2-16 counts have steadily been going up. WBC 19.2, RBC 4.12, HB 12.6, platelets 228, percent lymph 69.2, ALC 13.3. While I was there thought my thyroid looked big so did ultrasound which did show solid nodes. had ct scan w/ contrast and waiting on results which I will hear on Thursday. Already set up with Endo dr but can't see him till July 6th. Talking needle biopsy which doesn't sound like fun to me. Was told endo dr would be the one to do biopsy. Sounds like a long time out if I need to have that done. Should I be more persistent??? So much for watch and wait. It doesn't look like I will be waiting or watching for very long. Am I being to negative on this?? I have worked for doctors all my life and I am not afraid to tell them what I expect. I recently changed PCP as was not happy with the one I had. I actually interviewed my new PCP and told him what I expect from him. I think I shocked him but he is working for me. Any input would be great.
