I have been fortunate enough to be on the fabulous Ibrutinib for just over a year, and it has brought my Lymphocyte count down from 252 to 5.
Now, I require a knee operation early in the New Year, and the IciCLLe trial that I am on requires that I should stop taking ibrutinib for a week before and a week after the operation.
I imagine this will interrupt my otherwise serene progress towards MRD.
Has anyone else experienced anything similar, and can you say by how much your counts jumped and for how long? I appreciate that everyone is different, but it might give me an idea.
Season's greeting to everyone, anyway!
