Hi everyone. My first post on the Forum. I was diagnosed with CML on Maundy Thursday this year. An astute GP decided to do a blood screen as I had a number of odd symptoms and the next day phoned to say ‘Your white count is high’. As a medic, I more or less knew what to expect. Admitted to hospital the same day with a count of 345K.
It is now three months and I am adjusting to the condition, settling on imatinib. A few queries about side effects which I may post elsewhere on the Forum.
Thanks for this site and the help it has already given me.
