Another brick in the wall


Not exactly leukemia related but I spent the better part of the day getting checked out in the ER yesterday. Stones in my gallbladder first appeared on a CT scan a few years ago and I have lived with the part-time symptoms a pretty long time. Earlier this week, they (abdominal pain after eating anything) got much more acute and impossible to ignore. With my neutrophil count so low these days, I am at higher risk of infection so I couldn’t let it go unchecked. It looks like the gall bladder will be coming out before long and I have an appointment to discuss with a surgeon next week.
