Hello. I know everyone is different - that seems to be the key phrase in being treated for CLL ☺️ - but can anyone say what their experiences of 2nd, 3rd rounds etc. of FCR were like, compared to their first,please?
My husband had no reactions to the Rituximab infusion in hospital, was very nauseous and a bit sick for a few days from about day 5, and has had severe, painful conjunctivitis and incredibly itchy spots covering his body (seems to be a reaction to one/some of the drugs). (Thanks so much to those of you who had helpful suggestions for this)
We're seeing the consultant this week to see how the blood test looks and to start round 2. Should we expect the same side effects, worse/ better, different ones....?
I can't imagine him having the same ones, doubled up, or coping with different ones on top 😕
Naively, I thought he'd feel better as he got towards the end of the first round...
He's also lost a lot of weight.....just because he was sick at the beginning, or to be expected? He's eating well now.
Thanks so much for reading!😉
