I was diagnosed with CLL in August with W&W. thank goodness I found this wonderful, informative site. I have learnt so much which makes me far less stressed. My Haematologist said she follows WHO protocol/diagnosis guidelines of over a 5 Lymphocyte count is CLL. Mine was 5.21. I went for my three month check out and was told I now do not have CLL but MBL as Lymphocyte count now 4.23. I realise MBL is a pre-cursor for CLL.
I was never told another blood test on another day could have a different meaning. And was told at this initial visit people do not become better but can remain the same for years.
I am not complaining but would be grateful for an explanation which I can understand! It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride.
