My 24-year-old sister was diagnosed Monday 12/27 with AML with WBC of 420,000. Needless to say, the docs are amazed she made it to the end of the week. What are some encouraging things we can say at this point? She is such an upbeat person, but now she is convinced she will die in short order....we haven't walked in her shoes so we don't say much. What about infertility since she has already undergone the majority of her initial induction phase chemo so it would be too late for drugs to chemically suspend her ovaries during chemo I would think. Her doc had to leave town and will not be back for a bit so we are not asking too many ?'s at this point. Also, does anyone have good info on the best BMT hospital to go to? We are discerning between Mayo and Seattle presently. Thak you, there are just so many ?'s!
