Learning I have Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL)
In September, I went in for my annual mammogram. All was good with it but the lymph nodes in my armpit were enlarged. Blood work showed my WBC was really high.
I then saw the oncologist, learned I have CLL and started chemo in November. I’ve had treatment for 4 months. My count is down. He told me when I started, we would do 6 months and then a pet scan to see how they are doing. I had one before I started and it showed only the lymph nodes under the arms were enlarged. The oncologist has mentioned starting me on a chemo pill after I finish my infusion treatments.
My friends and family live miles away but are always checking on me and supporting me. As I have always been told God has a plan for us, I know he is watching over me. I pray for all those facing their journey. God bless you all.
Did you have to make diet changes after your blood cancer diagnosis?
