Hello from Canada. I'm a 58 year old widower with a career (retired) in healthcare. I was diagnosed with CLL in mid-December 2015. I had recurrent illnesses, and couldn't seem to get better which was unusual for me. After my initial consult with the hematologist in the spring of 2016 I've experienced increasing symptoms which are really slowing me down:. Fatigue, insomnia, aching shin bone pain and memory loss. I'm currently in the watch and wait phase, but really feel dreadful some days. My WBC is 14.4, and lymphocytes are 8.7
When should I be looking to initiate treatment?
