Hello my name is Aylin. I'm new in the group. We live in Turkey so please forgive me when I make errors in my English My husband was diagnosed in 2012 with CLL at the age of 48. He didn't need a treatment until 2015. He had a FCR tratment when his white cells were very high and the platelet level was low. He was OK until last month. He suddenly lost 10 pounds in a month, and started to sweat extremly when sleeping. Our doctor started with R-Benda protocol (Rituximab) last week, it will last 6 sessions, 1 session every 4 weeks.
Did anyone had the same therapy? I know that every patient is unique but I want to know what comes next. Will he need a therapy every 2 years? What can I expect from the future?
And what is the best CLL Center in England? We want to make a visit when the therapy is over and ask for recommendations.
Thank you all
