I was diagnosed with CMML after I had pain from an enlarged spleen. The doctor put me on Jakafi and then chemo. I ended up having two blood transfusions until a donor was found and then I had my transplant. I would definitely go to a cancer center for another opinion.

As my oncologist said it is an extra set of eyes and maybe they have a different look at it. Good luck and god bless, stay safe.
