Diagnosed with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia

I was recently diagnosed with this rare leukemia. Mostly, men are affected with this because there are more men who come in contact with contaminated material. There is no cure at the present time. I was placed on Hydroxyurea to help stabilized this until there is a cure. I believe the reason for this condition is because I worked years ago for a large Oil/Gas company that didn't require workers to wear respirators while handling contaminated equipment. The dust and sludge on down hole logging tools contained radioactive matter most of the time. I am seeking others who have been diagnosed with this who have worked with similar equipment.

Wink Re: Diagnosed with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia

My husband is 56 years old, he was just diagnoised yesterday with chronic myler leukemia accelerated phase. I am so scared of loosing him. He has Hepititis C and that is also out of remission now. He is not a candidate for a bone marrow or liver transplant. They are putting him on medication therapy within the next two days, he has an appointment to go to a cancer hospital next week. Can you please tell me what all this means; my mind is on overload.

Thank you,
