I was diagnosed with CLL in April 2012 following a routine blood test. I am in the early stage and have no symptoms as yet. Partly as a consequence of the CLL, I was advised to go for some further routine health checks, including a mammogram. This resulted in a breast cancer diagnosis in September 2013.
I don't know anyone who has managed to be diagnosed with two chronic conditions in one year and don't mind admitting that I am finding it hard to cope and am unafraid of what the future holds. It would be great to hear from anyone in a similar situation.
