Hi, dear friends,
My mom started the treatment with ibrutinib 10 days ago, the full dosis 420mg per day. She is 17p, naive patient, WBC 120.000. She has two side effects for now on: Articular pain and stomach ache, more like gastritis.
Does anyone has a clue what to do or what to take for mitigate those side effects? Of course she will see specialists but I would like to know from patients who are on ibrutinib to know better.
The other question I would like to ask, has to do with the new trial:
"Ibrutinib plus Venetoclax"
Recently I read an articule that show evidence of a a synergy between the two medicines, so it´s not the same having Ibrutinig and if fail then Venetoclax, than combine both.
It seems like this new combination could be something near to "the cure" or someting pretty radical to have more chances to win the battle.
Thanks for the support. Sorry for my english, and best wishes from Argentina for all!
(I took this picture in Patagonia a few months ago hoping my mom will be fine. Let´s fight all together!
