I saw my Dr. 8 weeks ago and he was pretty sure I was getting near treatment. I have been W & W since 2011, I'm 57. He was concerned because the Absolute count went from 12,000 to 22,400 in 4 1/2 months. I just received my new results today: Absolute count is down to 18,000 White count is hovering around 24,000. This time around he ran the Immunoglobulin G, M and A.........G is at 510 and M is at 26, A is at 27 - normal range. - So G and M are both are low and I think...(not sure) this means the CLL is on the move and progressing as my system is having a hard time fighting infection. I will see my Dr on Monday, today is Tuesday Jan 23rd.....I have decided to get a 2nd opinion now that I have the newest numbers....SO with all of that being said, does the Absolute Count STILL have to be around 30,000 BEFORE treatment? Is that the standard as I understand it? I don't want to be rushed into treatment taking all into consideration, hence the 2nd opinion. I'd really like to hear what you think. Thank you in advance, and thank all of you for posting about FCR since that is what this Dr. wants to go with.
