I hope everyone is doing well. Had a long day.. Had my appt for chronically elevated WBC. Bottom line they drew blood to check for CML, Chronic myelogenous leukemia. She said I should not be worried, she doesn't thinkI have it, but at the same time there are people diagnosed at my WBC levels. Please Take care of yourselves.

Have you had a bone marrow biopsy done? That would deffinetly give you the answer if you have CML. There are at least 4 approved drugs for CML and more in the works. Most people live a fairly normal life now as to before the TKI drugs that are being used now.
