New here, went for a routine ultrasound in 2015, found multiple enlarged peasize lymph nodes in stomach area. Upon further testing I was diagnosed with CLL I'm on watch and wait. Upon doing my own investigations by gathering past blood results as far back as 10 years ago, I noticed a decline in my White Blood Count and Hemoglobin. My Lymphocytes were also elevated. I'm no doctor but it's clear to me I've had this since 2012. This was a fluke how they found it, thank god I revisted a former doctor who did this test only because he hadn't seen me for 5 years. My current Doctor didn't even know I had it or saw the difference in blood results. Always keep a second Dr. handy. Be always proactive and never leave anything in the hands of one person especially your health. I'm grateful to at least I know now than later.
