I was diagnosed with Richter Transformation of CLL last April and was fearing the worst. I had several different chemotherapy types, each with two or three cycles, but a biopsy in October of one of the growths in my abdomen showed that the Richter transformation had gone. The CLL remains, however.
I don't know which treatment or combination did the trick. I just know that I had two cycles of mini-LEAM, one of IVE and two of gemcitabine/dextamethasone/cisplatin. Has anyone else got rid of it with any of these? My consultant said he had not come across anyone before who had been successful with these treatments for Richter ttransformation. I'm just curious about whether my experience is genuinely unusual or whether others have had success via these or other treatments.
