Need Info on Leukaemia....

My father-in-law has unfortunately recently found out his leukaemia has returned 2 years after he finished his 1st bout of chemotherapy.

It was such a shock as he seems in such good health.

What is the likelihood, if any, that it will be more severe this time? (This is something I read years ago about cancers in general)

Have you tried Macmillan ? They have a helpline and lot of online resources.

Just found this v old thread.

Thanks for replying loveschocolate

He is 66 and its acute myeloid leukaemia.

Since starting this post in April he has come close to dying 3 times and has been in and out of hospital ever since with infections. He is in remission I should add.

Its so unfair, we wonder whether life will go on like this for him and he'll never be truly free of it?
