This is Dr. David
this situation is unusual of severe edema and pain and compartment syndrome in just his left hand.
did he have an IV into that hand that infiltrated possibly?
was he getting Vidaza or hydroxyurea into that hand or arm? chemo infiltration into the soft tissue can cause chemical soft tissue edema and swelling and compartment syndrome?
does he have an infusor port where he was getting his chemo?
he could also have DIC which can cause abnormal clotting and bleeding in the body as well if he has clotting disorder
WBC count of 104k can cause increased viscosity of the blood and this can cause slugging of his blood and edema and swelling in the distal capillaries with the high WBC counts causing clots
I think that is more likely than osteonecrosis of the bone.
CML is a tough cancer to fight and can be quite aggressive.
it is hard to fight the bone marrow when it wants to make way too many white blood cells which don't work properly at all.
I am sorry about your dad
let me know if you have questions.
