So 8 years from diagnosis and a past year where I was no longer considering myself Superwoman who had inadvertently created the cure for the common cold...I've had all those missed coughs and colds now and even topped it off with sepsis, and managed to get one very angry tonsil through it all, that complained so loudly it just had to go.... But not without a fight I can assure you! (Suffice to say having extreme bleeding following surgery is just a tad horrific!!)
But once healed and recovered from the 12 months from hell I was looking forward to a restful summer, sadly my remaining tonsil had other ideas (and no, don't know why it wasn't removed with the other, I really should have asked!) It's quickly taken up the mantle of being a pain in the neck! Literally...and the solution.... treatment time. Meanwhile my CLL is actually quite stable. What a conundrum, here I am facing the chemo primarily for a naughty tonsil!
Anyone else been in a similar situation? And I am really struggling to know what to do for the best....agree to the trial which is years!! Or the shorter FCR? How have others come to decide which path to tip toe down? (I'm definitely not rushing to get on either, tbh, and I know many of you will groan, but I'd wanted to do this holistically and have been really improving my diet, lifestyle etc)
Any thoughts appreciated.
