2 years ago I found out I have CLL. Two years prior to that I kept going to the Doctors because I was feeling very tired, night sweats and just wore out. My Doctor kept telling me it was stress. They did blood tests and I would get a call back to the office to say my white blood count was a bit high (12-15) but it was nothing to worry about probably just stress. I kept telling him it was not stress, I know the difference and this is different. This went on for two years, so on my last blood test and again I got called back into the office and again the Doc told me the same thing but this time I got mad and hollered at him and said " NO, it is not stress, something is wrong" so finally he looked back at all my last tests from the last two years then he looked up at me with a very worried look. He said " now don't get scared, I am going to send you to a blood specialist". I went had bone marrow test and yes I have cll. It was confirmed two years ago but I have had it four years now. I was so angry at my Doc. He made me think I was crazy for two years. I went to the mayo clinic and in the report it said have was confirmed with CLL two years ago and two years prior to that I had leukocytosis. My white count in now 23 and my lymph count is about 85. I am in the watch and wait period. I keep forgetting to ask my Doc at what point do I have to have Chemo and bone marrow transplant. I am only 47, I was 43 at the onset of CLL.
