Hi. My dad who is 63 yrs old was diagnosed with AML two weeks ago also. I have been researching it and talking to his doctors and nurses but I am so worried about him. He has been having fevers, he has pneumonia and now they suspect he has a blood clot. His WBC, RBC and platlets are very low. He has just finished a 7/3 dose of chemotherapy and tolerated it well but he now has no appetite and he is weak. From what I have read, AML is aggressive and so is the treatment. I do not mean to scare you but if you are anything like me you want to know what the deal is and do not want anyone candy coating it.

[QUOTE=Yessan;4135972]Dear members of the board,

A couple of weeks ago my mom (age 70) was diagnosed with Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML). She was not ill prior to the diagnose but the illness was discovered because of her low blood values (90).

She is currently undergoing chemotherapy and is doing surprisingly well except for occasionally feeling sick to the stomach.

I would like to get in touch with people who have any sort of experience of this situation since I don't know much about AML or the treatment.

Please, it would mean the world to me.

With regards
