Hi all, I was diagnosed 3 years ago with CLL, I am now 53 yo and with wbc up and platelets down as well as swollen lymph nodes and enlarged spleen my Doctor has started me on treatments. I am going to Dana Farber and taking part of a study that combines Ibrutinib with standard FCR treatment. I will take the Ibrutinib daily for the next 2 years and finished my 1st cycle of FCR 12/19. After going back for my first follow up my wbc dropped from 179,000 to 6,800, lymph nodes are markedly smaller and my spleen has gone down. I was pretty psyched. I will have FCR every 4 weeks for 3 days for the next 5 months. I was just wondering if anyone else out there is or has been a part of the IFCR study. Would love to be able to compare notes.
