Sorry to hear about your problems. I had the opposite, I did not get depressed when I was having chemo or when I was diagnosed. Instead I saw it as a burden and was absolutely determined to get through it, I just had to. Everyday is a clean slate, a new beginning, a new chance to start a fresh. I did get depressed when I got out and I still can't take control of my life, I do not like being looked after so all my decisions are made for me - as long as I can make my own decisions and have control - every day is worth it. Theres always light at the end of the tunnel.

Hello Sophie, I'm fully treated but having 2 monthly checks. What is Lupus and what is Gleevec? Yes I'm 13 months in remission.

Personally I think my lower back ache is a result of sitting all day on the computer working rather than exercising, no funny walk?
Reference bleeding - when your platelets are low you may find you have nose bleeds as I did, this will be checked by doctors and your platelet levels will be monitored. Chemo injections do give tingling, especially on the first round of chemo.

I personally was on the Chemo for 4 months, and yes had discumfort inlower back (hip bone) from where the marrow was taken, but more so now funnily enough when out walking. Not sure if its related or not, I spend alot of time sat down at a desk, but have discomfort when walking for longer than 30 mins.

I was diagnose with leukemia aml in August 2011, after a routine blood test to check for cholestrol. Just days later I was in hospital receiving chemo. 27 blood transfusions and 4 months of heavy chemo and clinical trials, thirteen months in remission I survived, so far. I have regular blood checks every two months, so far so good. Will keep you posted, hopefully.
