I've been on W&W for almost 3 years. Some discomfort in the abdominal area from time to time as a result of speen enlargement and other lymph gland swelling in the abdominal area ( also observed in CT scans), but I wouldn;t consider it to be a major problem in regard to being totally unbearable when I go through these periods. The most visable sign of noticable lymph gland swelling has always been on one side of my neck. That too, appears to go through cycles. Sometimes large-- sometimes smaller, but never goes away. Why would I want to start treatment of any kind, if I am feeling relatively well? I will be 73 in a few months.
