I had some chemotherapy (FCR) last year and now my bloods are improving all the time. The thing that reminds me that I've still got Cll is the hot flushes. Nobody ever seems to to have heard of hot flushes except as a symptom of the menopause which I'm sure mine is not. So, can anyone please explain why Cll causes hot flushes. What are the mechanisms involved and can I do anything to alleviate or minimise them? Before the chemo they occurred only during the day but now I get them, on and off, 24/7. Thank you in anticipation.
