So I was looking over my pathology report from my bone marrow this past Nov (9months on Sprycel) and this is what it said:
Bone Marrow Diagnosis:
Bone Marrow, left, clot, aspirate smears:
Cellular (60%) bone marrow with trilianeage hematopoiesis
Peripheral blood film:
ABSOLUTE LYMPHOCYTOSIS, (SEE COMMENT)
Correlation with ancillary studies is recommended for assessment for minimal residual disease.
Flow cytometric immunopheneotyping is recommended on peripheral blood specimen to assess for B- or T-cell neoplasm.
Could you please tell me what this means? I did a little Googeling (killer on my nerves) and if I am understanding this right it means that that even though I am having a good response (PCR less that 0.01) the Sprycel isn't able to kill allof the CML? Or that they think I might have lymphoma too? Is that possible? To have leukemia AND lymphoma at the same time? This is making me really nervous because it was Jan of this year that I was first diagnosed...
