MRI machine

So. As some of you know, until Leuk causes symptoms, leukemia is an invisible disease. It’s easy to forget you have it. But, of course, it doesn’t take too long until a reminder shows up.

I had an MRI for an issue unrelated to my leukemia but apparently the test picked up more than just my hip problem. It was a single line in the report, almost an afterthought:

The bone marrow signal is abnormal but consistent with the clinical history of marrow infiltrative process/CLL.

Yeah. Hey guys, all I wanted was info on why my hip was hurting. I didn’t need the casual mention of Leuk lurking around in my bone marrow.

Really? No kidding. Thanks for the reminder.
