Jan 6, 2018 · CLL - newly diagnosed in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I was diagnosed with CLL when I was 68 and was kept under surveillance until last year when my spleen had grown substantially. I decided then to have treatment which was chemotherapy with the same drugs mentioned once a month for four months. I had no side effects of any kind during treatment and was able to have my normal life. I’m now 80 and in excellent health. Hope it helps.
