Hello, I was diagnosed w/ CLL in 10/12 and was treated with BR for only 2 months because of suspected side effects. However, I responded well and went into remission for 5 years. I had a recurrence in 7/17 and received only Rituxin for 4 weeks, 1 day/week. I had another great response to Rituxan and am back in remission. So, what are your experiences with recurrences at this point? My oncologist said that I would "be around" in 5 years, but expects recurrence in about 2-3 years.
