I was talkng with a gal this weekend who has CML and I was astonished when she told me how her Drs. were treating her CML. The treatment was to do nothing but wait and see!!??!! I asked her what her counts were when she was dx and she said it was 17,000 for her white count. She said she has had it for six years and it has never gotten over 23,000. Her Dr. told her not to look it up on the interent or find any info about it and that he would let her know if she needed to worry. She never had a BMB and she had no clue what the philadelphia chromozone was. She gets blood tests every three months but knew nothing of a PCR or Fish test. She says all her other counts are normal except this rise in her white blood count. I was amazed and confused. I am happy for her yet can't help but be a little concerned. Does anyone else know of a person like this?
