Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, and other than being "tired", I am doing pretty well. My white cells are in the normal range which is a great thing, but my platelets and red cells are down at the bottom of the barrel. Will be testing blood again tomorrow. Guess this is now a weekly routine.
Looking back at my initial side effects to Cipro it almost seems impossible to comprehend that they were by far worse than anything that this CML has thrown at me! Crazy, huh? Leukemia is life threatening and Cipro Poisoning makes you feels as though you want to die. The pain and suffering that I experienced with Cipro almost made me not want to live, leukemia has made me want to fight to live.
I must say that my Cipro symptoms have subsided drastically during the past 11 months. The only real issues that I still have are in the balls of my feet and the joints in my toes. I tough one for a dancer! Somehow I have managed to dance through the cipro poisoning and now I shall be dancing through leukemia. I truly believe that my stubborn tenacious nature has helped me to endure and thrive despite all of these roadblocks.
Hard to believe that the guy upstairs didn't think that I already had enough to yadda, yadda about. For those of you interested in following my CML story I have started another blog: Dancing My Way Through Leukemia. Thanks for listening and all of your support. Hope all of you are gaining in your own personal battle against Floroquinilone Poisoning!
