FISH vs Cytogenetics

Dr. Hayman’s assistant called me today to answer my questions about the bone marrow biopsy. The results from the FISH sounded scary to me, but she let me know that I had normal karyotypes in the cytogentics and that’s what was more important. She said that it had no effect on my treatment plans. (What plans?) I’ll be seeing Dr. Orlowski on Tuesday, so I’ll get more details from him then.
