Hello there everyone,
Got the results back from the test today and I'm chromosome 12 deleted (good prognosis she told me) and while my spleen and liver have continued to grow (inevitably) my platelets have recovered from 95 to 120, thus making treatment unnecessary for now (yippee).
Funny thing is I've heard of deletions on chromosome 17, 13 etc but never 12 LOL.
Anyway, that gives me some breathing space to save up for when I do, eventually, need treatment... as being self employed that was my biggest worry (more so even than the disease progression etc)
Aside from CLL it's rained here as well this week, for the first time in 6 months, so we can all breath a little sigh of relief as the wild fires in the north east of Spain and in Portugal are terrible right now... that and the fact all the reservoirs are empty. Fingers crossed it rains a lot more from now till Christmas.
Regards to you all and keep well.
