Hello Everyone - good to see there is a support site like this on here. Tired of trying to find answers in the most logical of places!
My dad has had CLL for about four years now - first time around he had chemo and it put it into remission for about a year, he visited a herbalist and was feeling on top of the world but unfortunately his white count started going up again and the second time around we had to wait for trial drug (idealisib) problem is he has enlarged glands on his lungs and this most horrendous cough - the oncologist hopes (though didnt seem too bothered) that it would settle with the treatment - three weeks in and he's no better and in terrible form - he is so depressed - very hard to watch as he is not like this normally. He also is back to infection after infection - it seems to be directly hitting his immune system. So what I am wondering from anyone else's experience - do you know how long it takes for it to get into your system/start working ? did anyone else have these problems??
thanks for all and any advice - really appreciate it greatly
