Question: Hello ,

My mother has been diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) almost a month back. The results showed she was very early stages and under watch and wait. Just yesterday, she suddenly had sudden sweats at home although the weather is cold and not warm.

I wanted to know if that is a normal issue or is there something we should do or be concerned about?

Blood for cbc/diff

Hi

Since your mother had been diagnosed with chronic lypmphocytic leukemia and had sudden sweats although weather is cold and not warm i would advise her to do a blood test for complete and differential blood count and a blood culture sensitivity test

If any infection found in blood then sensitive antibiotics needs to be given
