My life changed in an instant when I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. I was overwhelmed and scared, not knowing what to expect. I was told that I needed to start chemotherapy right away.
The first few weeks of chemotherapy were hard. I was tired all the time and had no appetite, so I was losing weight rapidly. I was also in a lot of pain and had to take a lot of medication. I was also very weak and had to stay in bed for most of the day.
But as the weeks went by, I started to feel better. I was able to get out of bed and go for short walks. I also started to gain some of the weight I had lost. My appetite was slowly returning and I was able to eat more.
The chemotherapy treatments were also working. My doctors were monitoring my progress and were pleased with how well I was responding. After a few months of treatment, I was in remission.
Although I was still tired and weak, I was feeling much better. I was able to go out with friends and do some of the things I used to enjoy. I was also able to go back to work part-time.
My journey with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia has been a long and difficult one, but I am so thankful for the progress I have made. I am now in remission and feeling better than ever. I am so grateful to my doctors and nurses for all of their care and support throughout this journey.
My battle with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia has taught me a lot about resilience and strength. I am so proud of how far I have come and I am determined to stay in remission. I am so thankful for the happy ending to my story and I know that I will remain strong and healthy for many years to come.
My name is John and I am a survivor of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia.
