    Just Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I went to have blood work done for a foot surgery and my white blood cell count was 187 I waited 2 hours and had it retaken and it was 208 spent the night in the hospital and they told me it was CML lekeuma. I was scared they waited for the last test to find out if it was the Philadelphia chromeasone and when the test results came it it was confirmed
