First question

Remember, if you have questions, please ask in the comments of the posts, cause others will have the same ones and we’d love to get everyone informed at the same time.  We also have more than a few medical friends who might be able to answer some on here, or correct if info is wrong.

My dad asked: “This was all caught so so early, like in a beginning stage – how does that play into the medical conversation?”

Part of the name of his type of leukemia is “acute”, which means sudden onset in this case.  When B went into the hosp back in December for the campylobacter (food poisoning), they drew blood then to try to figure out what was going on.  When Dr Kamal came to give us the news on Monday (it might have been Dr Kuan, actually, but no matter) I asked if there was evidence of this in his bloods then.  He said that they went back and looked and there was NO evidence of it.  B was released from hospital then on December 16.  So on that day there was no sign of it.

B did have some unexplained bruising last month, but we just put it off as part of his short term memory fun. That apparently is another symptom of AML, which of course we didn’t know at the time.

As for the medical conversation, I don’t think anyone medical has actually said that we caught this early.  They’ve more said that it’s been caught, and now they’re going to treat it. I will try to ask today, if I am there when the doc is around.  Can anyone add more in the comments?

Many people can`t afford medical insurance and thus forced to pay for the expensive prescription medications or look after cheap generic drugs online. Generics are potent and safe as other branded counterparts. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as German Remedies. With this in mind one may buy levaquin uk in generic online pharmacy with free shipping worldwide
