I was recently diagnosed with CLL (Dec. 12). Today I did a follow-up with my doctor and he is setting it at Stage 2, instead of Stage 0 as he had figured it would be. I am a little confused, as I thought that would mean that I have spleen enlargement, which I do not have. Are there other indicators that I am missing? My lymphocytes are at 20,000 (up 3,000 in a month). He is advocating for no treatment at this point. My lymph nodes are swollen, but still small.
