Hello. My husband who is 34 was diagnosed as having leukemia last October. He had many of the same symptoms your daughter had. I too felt the doctor had let it go to long. He had a tumer in his chest cutting off the blood and air flow to his head making it swell. For three weeks we went back and forth to the doctor where he simply kept switching the antiobotics. Finally I took him to the emergency room which led to the diagnosis of leukemia. The survival rates are very good for it these days. So keep thinking positively, it can be cured. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to speak to me further about this. Take care.: My daughter has been told by her family Dr that her white blood cells are elvated he has been treating her for head aches, When I found out that her white bloods cells were up I became worrie.
: I had a sister die because of Leukmia & I know some of the syptoms that she had.
: My daughter has some of the same syptoms, Why this family Dr couldn't see this when he was takeing care of her?
: It up sets me to no end, She has been seeing him for some time now & as far as I'm concern this has went to long not to notice or at lease see some kind of sign.
: She wants to sleep all the time,She had to stop working because as to how she is feeling, She said, that her bones ache really bad, She said that her leggs feel like they want to fall off, At night she said that she sweats real bad, Her Dr told her that her white blood cells were evelated & thats all he would tell her, She was suppose to go back to see him in 2 weeks, That is when she decided to changes Dr's.
: The Dr she will be seeing is a Dr that works in the field of Leukmia.
: She is 36 years old.
: My daughter has also been talking to a women who has Leukmia & when my daughter told this lady about her syptoms the lady said, You have the same syptoms that I have.
: My question is .What should my daughter expect on her first visit to the New Dr?
: Can you help me out as soon as possible.
: Things seem to be happening to fast & we have no answers.
: My name is Corrine.
: Thank you very much.
