Hi again! Went to the oncologist this past week and all of my blood work is still looking good. I wrote about this before, but when I was diagnosed back in January, I had this huge knot (the size of a baseball) inside my thigh. My oncologist said it was a mass of leukemia cells, but after starting Gleevec is went away within a week or two. The problem is now ...my thigh still hurts where that was at. For those of you that had knots as well (I know there was one lady on here that did) how long did it take for that not to hurt? Do you think it's normal for that area to still hurt? It's not like a throbbing pain or a stabbing pain, but I can still tell it's there and it annoys me and freaks me out a little bit. It's just a tender area.
Also, my oncologist suggested I see a leukemia specialist when I went back to the states (we are living in Germany right now) and I'm going back to the states for a visit in April. What do you think? Will they tell me anything I don't already know? Anyone go to any leukemia specialists in St. Louis??
Thanks so much!
