Neither my GP or Hematologist mentioned the leukemia word when I was told I had Tcell LGL. I'm thinking now I should have asked more questions, because it wasn't until I did research on the internet, did I realise this could be serious. When I questioned the GP "was it leukemia?" all he said was"which ever way you want to look at it" ???
My latest blood test showed my white blood cell count has gone down, it's now 4.6. Here in Australia the normal range is under 4 and my highest reading has been 5.8. I noticed the last two weeks my mouthulcers are not so severe.. The only change in lifestyle since my last blood test six months ago is that I go to the gym and have increased my vitamin intake.
