19 is not a high number at all. I was at 110 before I began treatment. Everyone is different but I’m now in remission over a year with my CLL.

My last count was 137,000, doctor ordered scan and marrow biopsy and said time for treatment! I’m still feeling good except for fatigue so I’m reluctant to treat it???? What do you all think????

I would definitely get a second opinion and see what they say and then you decide which doctor is best for you

Hi Victor,
With any diagnosis of leukemia, it is always wise to get a 2nd opinion and even a 3rd if you want. The WBC should be around 111-14. Are your lymphocytes elevated? Those are the cells that are involved with CLL.
