Hi All, I thought I would give you an update re my neck tumour biopsy, and the cancellation of the start of Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) treatment, during the Tumour investigation.
As I may have mentioned earlier, the Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) treatment has been put on hold, until the results of the biopsy following an MRI scan, which takes place on the 14th September.
I don’t know if this is good or bad news, as the tumour is inoperable for me, and in a fairly inaccessible area, from my left mandible moving towards my Skull Base.
My new locum Haematologist (They keep changing) says that she wants me to have my bloods done at my GP’s on the 7/8th of September, and sent to her. She already took full bloods when I saw her last on 25th July. when my Blood counts were as follows:
white blood cell 119.0
Can anyone interpret those for me, as to the severity etc. I have been told that they are at a level where treatment would normally commence.
I cannot understand why she does not have me attend the Haematology Department and have them taken there and then. (Anyone any idea’s)
I am obviously concerned as to what level my bloods have to reach without treatment, before it becomes, problematic, for me.
I know I may be asking too much, but I thought I would pass it by you all, in case anyone has experienced similar problems, or has specific knowledge, in this area.
I wish everyone well, and thanks again for the tremendous support our forum has expressed, it has made things somewhat easier for me. Ron
