I am new here. My counts went from 25k to 56 and then on up in a month or so. I had been on watch and wait but will be starting treatments soon. Anyone else have such rapid doubling? thanks.
A great big welcome @JoeVM to our forum.
I have Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and obviously I always get concerned when I get my blood test results.
I have not had that rapid doubling, fluctuating yes, but I believe medical people take blood test results plus other aspects/symptoms into account when considering offering treatment regimes
You say you will be starting treatment soon, how do you feel about that?
There is a lot about Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) on the Blood Cancer UK website I attach the link

I have been on an emotional rollercoaster ever since my diagnosis.
I always write down all my fears, questions and practicalities before appointments to ensure I cover everything and get answers.
I also find waiting and the unknown horrible
I look forward to hearing more about you and how you are getting on.
