What Is The Worst Type Of Leukemia?

Postby Jeffry » Sun Jan 22, 2017 7:06 am

i have cll. diagnosed 2 months ago. the acute leukemias are usually worse. usually needing chemo immediately after diagnosis.
my blood counts with cll are still good.
although i did have to have my spleen removed, since the cancer collected there.
with the chronic leukemias, sometimes you don't even need chemo, if your blood counts are o.k. and the symptoms are bearable.
the dr. is taking a "watchful waiting" period with me.
no chemo, just monitoring blood counts.
the prognosis with chronic leukemia is usually better. they say that i could live 10 years or more. but there is no cure with chronic.

The worst type is that one someone is personally fighting! Ever noticed that with any disease, the one you are experiencing is always worse than everyone else's and worse than one you may have had before.
