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.
