Re: wacky blood results and doc said leukemia?????

I think it's premature for the doc to have said leukemia, but you need to follow up. I am recently in complete remission from t cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia / lymphoma. None of my blood counts were abnormal; it was other symptoms that clued them in. High white counts are a sign. Also, low Vit D has been associated with cancer risk, including leukemia. I tested low too, and immediate started 4000+ mg a day supplements. Good luck and let me know if you have questions. I am new to the board and hope to connect with fellow leukemia patients.

Hi wishishak,

That's great you're in remission! I was wondering though...none of your blood tests were abnormal? How did you get diagnosed? Just curious.

Thanks,
schao

I had enlarged lymph nodes in my neck that kept growing. They did two biopsies but both were inconclusive. Finally they did a bone marrow biopsy to see if it had spread, and discovered it was leukemia after all. Took a few month though! Do/did you have cancer?

Re: wacky blood results and doc said leukemia?????

I've oly recently been diagnosed with chronic pyeloid leukemia. I had the odd ache and pain, but dr thought is was arthritis. I had a high platelet count, but it was only after a pulmonary embolism that I had a bone marrow biopsy and then got a diagnosis of cml. I think the blood results are not enough for a diagnosis.
