Thank you for taking the time to review my question. My daughter just turned 17. Its been a rough winter health wise. She had pneumonia in November 2011. They did a complete cbc with diff at that time, along with westergren, and mono test , all normal except 970 monocytes (13%). Since then she has had regular illnesses about twice a month..sore throat, headache, muscle aches, always tests negative for strep. I should also mention she had a lap appy last July 2011 again normal labs except elevated lymphocytes (due to appendicitis?).
She is still sick..only now she is very fatigued with headaches body aches. She was spot tested for mono-and it was negative today. They sent her for another complete cbc with diff a westergren and an EBV antibody along with thyroid and RA test. Im worried sick this could be leukemia, with two fairly normal blood tests within the last 6-8 months how concerned should I be, and what should we be looking for?
Any input is greatly appreciated.
