My name is Cassandra, I was diagnosed on 08/27 of this year. Been thru the week of Chemo (3 & 7). I am just writing to see if there is anyone out there that has been thru this that can share. I was told that my bm biopsy came back as Leukemia with dysplasia. They subtype I was told didn’t fit in with the traditional subtypes, it’s not a “good” one but not one of the bad ones. I’m somewhere in between. I’m not 100% sure what that means. However the doctor did say I would probably have to get a stem cell transplant. He doesn’t think that the chemo alone will keep me in remission, but the stem cell will ensure remission. I know my husband is having a really hard time taking all this in and well honestly so am I a little. This is why I’m reaching out. I want to know if anyone has had a similar diagnosis and what they went thru. I’m still in the hospital recovering from my 1st round of chemo… I’m only 2 weeks in. I do have a wonderful supportive family, friends and colleges at work. Which I am sooo thankful for! Any suggestions on what helped you get thru would be nice. I look forward to hearing from everyone!! Thank you in advance.
