M4 Inversion 16

I'm new here. Just wondering if there are any survivors of AML M4 Inversion 16 out there? I was diagnosed in Dec 2011 (coming up on 1 year survivorship!). I was one of the lucky ones who did not need a bone marrow transplant. Would love to hear others stories of survivorship of the same subtype.

    AML M5 T16 mutation.
    AML M5 T16 mutation. Diagnosed in April 2011 and did not need a BMT. My lingering issue is joint pain, mostly in my knees. Mine was very sudden onset and very progressive. I was very lucky.

    Inversion 16

    I was diagnosed with AML Inversion 16 in Aug '12 and looking foward to saying I have been cancer free for 1 year. The longer it goes without it coming back the better I will feel about everything. We are lucky to have this diagnosis because other AML's are very agressive. Hope all is still well with your health
