Acute Myeloid leukaemia. I am being treated successfully for over three years with Azacitidine which is not a cure but is keeping my blood levels reasonably stable although I have a degree of neutropenia.
Saw an online site that sell cannabis oil with THC, which is not only illegal but goodness knows what additives they contain.
Every single medication has unwanted side effects, even over the counter drugs. I have to check with the clinic before I take anything apart from paracetamol.
I have read of miraculous cures contributing to the us of cannabis oil, and have been told many times by friends that I should be using this.
All of us who are suffering from cancer want a cure and there are many charlatans online who will take advantage of our plight and fleece your bank account.
Some symptoms of AML include:
If your cancer has spread, the doctor will give you chemo in the fluid around your spinal cord and brain. Doctors refer to this as intrathecal chemotherapy.
History of Acute Myeloid Leukemia
People differ in the way AML affects them, and it depends on various factors, including the AML subtype, your age, whether it’s a reoccurring cancer and if you’ve received chemotherapy treatment in the past.
In a study published in the Journal of Leukemia, physical symptoms of AML patients led to worsened quality of life. Fatigue is a common symptom in patients with AML, despite controlling any anemia effects. Fatigue in older adults who are 60 years old or older and are receiving chemo had moderate to strong fatigue scores correlating with physical, social, emotional and cognitive health and function. Additionally, there were moderate and strong connections between depression and fatigue as well throughout the study.
Many acute myeloid leukemia treatments can cause infertility. While typically temporary, infertility may become permanent. You’re more at risk of your infertility becoming permanent if you receive high doses of radiotherapy and chemotherapy to prepare you for a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.
