Hi, I was diagnosed with SLL in Feb 2016. I am at stage 0/1 and fairly stable. I am 50 and have very young children (had them in my 40s). I've asked my hematologist how long can I go without treatment/ how long do I have and she says everyone is different which I understand but I worry for my young children. My hematologist told me that 30% of her patients at my stage go to 10 years without treatment. Can anyone tell me more about this? Also, once someone starts treatment, what happens, how much longer can they go on? Sorry, don't mean to be morbid.
