Good morning @dburkert, my suggestion would be to find a large teaching hospital or better yet, make an appointment with Mayo Clinic. Here’s the link to get your appointment request started. http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

Dr. Grzegorz Nowakowski, a hematologist at Mayo Clinic has a video on T-Cell Granulocytic Leukemia you might find helpful.

hello Collen and thank you for asking. I think you would call it the stage of checking and waiting but mentioned as an option if that describes it well enough. the term itself threw me for a loop and in my confusion I came here. Referred to hematology for multiple years of high white counts.

I was diagnosed with T Cell LGL one year ago. My neutrophils were down to .5 and never got over 500. For ten months they had me on metrotrexate with no improvement. At the same time, I had a cancerous Lymphoma removed. As soon as I have a basil cell and Mohs surgery and Melanoma surgery on my face, I will begin Cyclosporine treatment.

I was diagnosed in about March, of 2023, and am in the watch and wait status. My blood is checked every three months. On my own I immediately started taking one turmeric and one Omega 3 in the morning and evening and every test so far of my blood has shown to be "normal". Don't know why that is but as long as they work I will keep on taking them. Have another blood draw on January 19, in the morning and will post the results. I asked him if I have inflammation of the thymus gland and he said no. He is not familiar with turmeric or omega 3, and I think they are keeping me alive. I will post the results of my blood draw and let you know.
