Leukemia, I have been so scared
Over the past 5 years I have been anemic due to having a heavy period from fibroids. I also had major vitamin deficiencies. Before my surgery to remove the fibroids I had to have blood work done and it came back saying my white count was low, 3.4. The doctor said we will keep an eye on it. I just had it redone, still the same. There are 4 doctors in the practice and the doctor I had last week looked back over the past 8-10 years at all the blood work I have had done and my white count has always ran about the same and no one ever brought it to my attention until I had the pre lab work done for the surgery. She said since all my other numbers looked good in the complete blood count It was nothing to worry about. I am always exhausted, fatigured, have aches and pains so I am scared they are missing something. But I am thinking, don't you think with having this low count for almost 10 years something would have showed up before this. Not sure and I am very scared. I know I have a B12 deficiency and a few others but this low white count makes me very nervous.
