Still new to all of this!

I was recently, about six weeks ago, diagnosed with CML. So far I am responding REALLY well to the Gleevec and numbers are nearly to normal range. I was wondering, should I be wearing a medical alert bracelet?

Hi there. Thanks for joining our forum - it would probably be worthwhile you ringing our nurse who would have a better insight on issues such as this. Our nurse is available Monday Tuesday Thursday Friday daytime, or Wednesday and Friday evenings.

The freephone number is 08088 010 444

Best wishes

Hi

You don't really need to wear an alert bracelet for CML. Just inform your family and close friends about your illness, so they can assist you if you ever need help. It sounds like you are doing really well.
