I have Multiple sclerosis. I have been on tysabri for 2.5 years. In june of 16' I had my routine blood tests including a CBC. I got a call from my neurologist saying my WBC were over 14k. He asked if I was sick. I was not. I had the same CBC test done in July and Aug. of 2016. Still WBC over 14k. I was sent to an oncologist were after further testing (blood work) I was diagnosed with CLL Chronic lymphocytic leukemia. I was first diag. w/ MS in 2010 however, MRI revealed (via new -vs- old lesions) I had MS for years and was mis-diagnosed. So, not just MS but CLL.
my blood work was normal I started xarelto in Apr of 2015 for a fib and had an maze ablation after I had high liver enzymes in my blood work. I went to a Hematologist and she told me it looks like I now have a lupus antibody. My cardiologist said it may be cause by the xarelto so in September I had a ekg monitoring chip implanted in my chest so that I could get off of the xarelto. In July of 2016 I went for a routine colonoscopy and was told I have a 5 cm cancer growth in the cecum of my colon. so that is where I am now waiting to see the general surgeon.
