Hi; new to this website. I was diagnosed with CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) 5 years ago. I am guessing your dad has this type of leuk and is stage 0. It is most prevelant in older folks (I'm 57). I have seen progression in some people much quicker than others. It depends on a host of factors. I am a First Connections trained volunteer for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society of upstate NY and Vermont. I am the CAM contact (complimentary and alternative medicine). Feel free to contact me.
Hi: I never heard of a little bit of Leukemia. Did your father say what type he has, that would help me answer some of your questions.
This is new to me. I do have Leukemia, and I have what they call CML which is short for Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. There are different types.
I would like to help you to understand, but it seems like your father is trying to spare you all the details. Leukemia's are very treatable, and not like years ago.
I was diagnosed in 1998, so maybe that will help you a little bit.
