Hmmmm....: While abdominal pain can be seen in patients with AML at diagnosis, for example from splenic infiltration by leukemia cells, bleeding or clotting episodes, etc., this is far from the first (or even 10th) thing that i think of in a patient with abdominal pain.. I'm wondering why you are making this connection. Sounds like you need to have a frank conversation about this concern with your dr.
