Hi @Magwitch1, A great big welcome to our forum, I am glad you have found us. What a time to be diagnosed, it certainly was a Friday, the 13th. That was the weekend we went into lockdown so, whilst not wanting to defend what happened to you, I think the whole country was in panic mode in unknown territory. You are not the only person on this site to have been diagnosed at this time and some were also given minimal information about their condition and way forward. Medical people use the words ‘watch and wait’ that feel like just being abandoned with a diagnosis which is a complete bombshell for us. To us the usual course of events is a diagnosis, treatment, hopefully a cure and we go back to ‘normal’. Often blood cancer patients go onto watch and wait, which is active monitoring, and patients have regular blood tests and the medical team look at the results, the patients other symptoms and tests and their medical history to decide the way forward. Some people have treatment immediately, others over the years. You must be in complete shock and so, so confused. I stress I am not a medical person, just someone who was also given my diagnosis in an unhelpful way a few years ago. The Blood Cancer UK website has lots of information and leaflets and they also have a wonderful Support Services Team on 0808 2080 888 (10am-7pm Monday-Friday, and 10am-1pm Saturday and Sunday) or via email at email@example.com if you need to contact them. Please keep posting how you are doing, we are all supporting each other through these unprecedented times.
