My recent BMB report came back. All is the same as last time. So, it appears I am still CCyR because the report says that the sample shows no morphology for CML. I am not sure what the "morphology" is exactly. I assume they cannot find the Ph+. However, it states that cytogenic studies are pending. A little confusing for me. But phew! Still in CP. Anyway, my blasts have increased. They came out in the 5-8% range. I was previously around 2% at dx and no increase with the last BMB last Dec.
The pathologist wrote she feels the increase in blasts is due to me being severely pancytopenic. And it is just the marrow generating more cells to "fill the void", so to speak. However, I have erythroid hyperplasia. Nothing new there. Just a bunch of immature red cells. Cannot seem to kick this anemia thing...and I get confused if this is due to the TKI or the leukemia. But I digress... The increased blasts worry me. I am guessing that the BMB report will be pretty much consistent with the "pending" cytogenic studies (whatever they are--I am confused). Still waiting on the molecular. Perhaps it is just me being a doe in the headlights with this whole CML thing, but I get a bad feeling. Should I be concerned?
