Thanks so much for the update. I was thinking of sending you a message asking how you were. I see stuff on FB but not the whole story and I really worry. Gosh youve had a rough time. I'm glad that you have pinned down the cause of the leukemia. Knowledge is power.
I think they are researching blood tests to try to be sure that chemo is necessary.
I dearly hope you are in remission soon.

I'm not telling you this to scare you but just to be aware. My leukemia was picked up by a routine blood test that my GP does each year but I'm just wondering about those of you that don't have regular GP visits or oncologist visits. Just be aware this can happen so don't think your full blood count tests are a waste of time and put them off.
As to where I am at the moment, I started hyperbaric chamber treatment yesterday in an effort to repair the lining of my bladder which was ruined with the radiotherapy that I had for my uterine cancer. At the same time I start my third round of chemo on Monday, this time it takes the form of two injections each day for seven work days. I'll have another bone marrow biopsy mid November which will hopefully show me in remission. They are hoping to do the transplant in late December once the hyperbaric treatment has finished.
Hope you are all doing well.
