I was diagnosed with cll several years ago. The diagnosis was quite clear in that i had stage 0. As far as i am concerned the chances of the disease developing are virtually zero and i can live with doing blood tests every three months.
A friend of mine was diagnosed last week with cll and she showed me the results of the tests and what was unclear was the staging. It specifically said 0-11. As 11 does not exist, could this be a typo?
My friend is the pessimistic type and now wants to do a bone marrow test to make sure she is okay. I am not a doctor, but feel that it is a total waste of time.
Anybody help me out on the above will be much appreciated
