Total shock when diagnosed as I was there for a 'well woman' exam with no symtoms to speak of. - ShirleyJZ

Oh No Associated with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Posted on June 1, 2013 View this journey (5 Experiences)

Sept 2011 went in for annual well woman exam and bloodwork. Next day was told bloodwork in and that I was severely anemic and needed to go to hospital asap for transfusion. well, they kept me as I needed 4 units! the next morning an oncologist visited me and gave me the horrible news that I had acute myeloid leukemia and needed to start aggressive right away. I was devastated. This was certainly NOT a 'well woman' report card......and my journey began.
