    Alistair, I'm not medically trained and even if I was, it wouldn't be appropriate for me to give you advice without knowing your medical history and current health status. You are obviously aware of the increased risk of stomach and bowel ...

    Hello Neil, I have a low platelet count with my CCL and am taking a multi vitamin tablet with iron and all seems ok. Do you know if I should be taking a 75mg aspirin tablet each day which I am at the moment. Many thanks, Alistair

    Not related to CLL as far as I'm aware, are you on antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin? They have been associated with tendon damage recently

    I have noticed in the last few months recurring tendonitis in my Achilles and bicep and was wondering if this is related to CLL. I'm not doing anything physically that would normally cause this and while I could rationalize that the Achilles ...

    Thanks very much for taking the time, Neil. Sounds very like me with regards to fluctuation in nodes. My bloods are all normal at the moment. I next see the specialist two months after initial diagnosis. My node(s) - there's only one visible - ...

    I was treated for six months for a chronic chest infection/cough at the publicly funded homeopathic hospital on Great Ormond Street in London. It made absolutely no difference and while I was in the waiting room there, I saw a poster asking for ...

    I probably had SLL for at least 4 years and maybe up to 9 years prior to diagnosis. After my diagnosis, my doctor checked my previous blood test records and the oldest on file showed I had low neutrophils in 2006 (3 years before diagnosis), which...

    I would certainly agree with your proposal, Brian. I am, though, at a relatively early stage in my RESONATE2 study (just started my 8th cycle of Imbruvica). I am not expecting a CR or MRD- outcome as I have the 11q- and almost certainly ...

    Hi Neil, A few questions if I may? How long before diagnosis do you think you had it? If you're High Risk, how come they didn't start treatment straight away? What do your nodes look like now? Regards, Steve

    Your diagnosis experience was similar to mine. I had a pea sized lump appear on my upper thigh many, many years ago. When I asked my GP about it, he said it was x (I can't remember his term for it) and nothing to worry about. It was only quite ...

    Hi Neil, Not at all. In October 2012, I noticed a lump under my right armpit which only manifested itself when showering in the morning. I went to the Doctors and saw a Nurse Practitioner who said she could not feel the lump, but would send for a ...

    Over the years I've tried different homeopathic remedies for hay fever. For me the ones I tried were a waste of money. I also tried one for jetlag. (For Sydney to London). Seemed to have an effect but as I didnt have a second me present not ...
