Hi Linda,

I am so sorry to hear about your relapse. I don't know a lot about leukaemia. I am on my second bout of breast cancer, having had a diagnosis 7½ years ago and another a year later. I know how low I felt waiting for the second diagnosis, so I'm not at all surprised that you naturally feel upset by this news.

There are many others on this site who have had relapses of leukaemia. If you use the search facility at the top left of this page (on the blue banner) and type in a few key words, you should find previous posts on this subject. This should also help you to find people who have 'been here' rather than waiting for a reply at this busy time of year.

Did you discuss any further treatment today, or where have things been left? Don't forget that we are always here for you whenever you feel like talking.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hello Linda.  That was news you could have done without but don't despair.  I see you are at the hospital this morning and hope you will be able to get answers to all the questions in your mind - perhaps you would let us know how it goes?  Best wishes to you.
