I am 28yrs old and live in North Wales.
I was diagnosed on Monday 21st February 2011 with CML, i have never heard of this before and neither had any of my friends or family. When i was told what i had i was so scared that i was about to drop down dead. I have a 7 year old son who is my world and all i could think about was him. After a few days i am managing to get my head round this i think. I'm still very confussed. I am going back to the North Wales Cancer centre on Tuesday to be signed onto the spirit 2 trial where i shall be told what drug i will be taking. I am so grateful that there is a site like this and also the yorkshire CML forum as initially i thought i was the only person ever to have had this. Its so inspiring to hear other peoples stories.
I'm hoping that in the future many of you can help me with my results as at the min i know nothing other than my white cells are at 33k and my platelets are 800, my spleen is not enlarged but i don't no what any of this means.
I must say thank you to David and Chris for there help and info so far they have both been great.
Hope you are all well
