Well I went to the Cleveland Clinic for my first 3 month follow up after having BR from December to May. I am happy to report that the Dr says I'm in complete remission and that my numbers are great! He says he found nothing in all of the tests they did!
I have 11q and Im CD38+ so I was so scared about everything when I first started reading about it in December when I was diagnosed. I thought my life was over. I thought I would be leaving my 12 kids motherless.
Everything went so fast for me. I went from completely healthy to having swollen lymph nodes in my neck so big that I was losing my airway. I was diagnosed on a Friday and started chemo that Monday. Now the dr says that I'm rocking! I go to both Cleveland Clinic and OSU so I know that Im in the very best hands!
I feel more comfortable now that everything really will be ok.
By the way...I plan on waiting out on a cure before I relapse!
We just have to stay focused on being healthy physically and mentally!
This site is the best place to go to stay focused and upbeat about our CLL!
Thanks to everyone that contributes to the knowledge and support on this site.
