Hi first post to this site though I've read others and it doesn't appear that any post is seen as trivial. I was diagnose with nhl about 13 years ago which was later classified as cll. After initial chlorambucil treatment I was on w and w until last year when my white cell and neutrophils count were low and I was put on rituximab and bendamustin for 6 months . Everything went well except my white cell and neutrophils were still low although any swollen glands had disappeared and the cll in my bone marrow hadn't increased. So been injecting gcsf to build them up and currently on only 1 injection per week . Also on Acyclovir and septrin as preventative doses. My problem is over the last week my skin is itchy and pin prickly although there is no sign of a rash or soreness, not changes to soap or washing powder . I had shingles about 6 years ago but no sign of it now. Has anyone else had this problem. Also have put weight on normally about 98 kg but now 103 kg .
