Hello! So I have just had my monthly visit with my CLL haemotologist. Preparing to go onto a trial with Ibrutinib and Venetoclax. Glands swollen and large all over. I am 11q unmutated lymphocytes trending upwards at 50 and last month were 33. Hb going slightly downwards but not bad. Everything else good. She mentioned that they would take tissue for an allogenic stem cell transplant as a plan B if the trial didn’t work. This has seriously freaked me out! Is this standard practice? Felt like the trial would be the answer! Any words of advice would be most welcome.
