My daughter was diagnosed in May 2015 at 29 years old. She is currently on watch and wait,being seen NYC every 4 mos and her numbers are steady and the first important year has passed with no real movement in numbers since diagnosis. Her markers are good as well. She is married now for 2 years and starting to think about having a family. Her hematologist and even the second opinion told her to go live her life even saying wait a year and if all is ok having a pregnancy while having cll/ sll would be ok. Her next appointment she plans on bringing up the specifics of what the doctor means regarding a pregnancy. Does anyone know of a young cll/sll patient who has successfully gone through a pregnancy? As her mom I am worried the cll may change. Thanks for any insight.
