I recently found out from a FISH test that I have the 11th and 13th deletions.
I know that the 13th is good but that the 11th is "bad".
I am in my 2nd month of chemo right now and responding great.
The doctor said nothing of the 13th deletion but said that the 11th will probably mean that instead of a 5 year remission time mine will be like a 2-3 year remission. He said that when he sees the numbers going up at that time, he would give me oral meds to control it.
Does anyone have these deletions and how has it effected you post treatment?
I know I havent even finished my first round of treatment and Im already thinking about my relapse
What can you tell me?
