I was diagnosed with CLL in May 2016, at age 57, at the time my WBC's were 17. I too was placed on wait and watch and given the impression treatment would be in the very distant future if ever. The other tests that were done put me at Stage 0. So I just went about my business, taking care to stay healthy ( diet, exercise, etc). Now 2 1/2 years later WBC's 59, but MD felt some lymph nodes and I am experiencing some autoimmune issues which by the way I have had off and on the past 40 yrs. I have to go back in January to discuss tx options; Imbrivica has been suggested. A few concerns I have are with the side effects of these drugs the main one being risk of hemorrhage; I had cerebral aneurysms clipped 25 yrs ago; the other being I am an Emergency Room nurse and have built up an iron strong immune system over the years; but have concerns that the drug initially will plummet My WBC 's putting me at greater risk. Any thoughts would be welcome.
