Hi my fellow CLLrs!! Well.. I just wanted to follow up with everyone and give those who are thinking about starting this trial an update on my experience so far. I started Ibrutinib back in October 2017 and started Venetoclax in January 2018. There was a ramp up period on the Venetoclax for 5 weeks. Started at 50mg to 400mg. I did well on the ramp up and overall I have experienced little side effects. Some muscle and joint pain. My lymph nodes are back to normal.. My numbers are all within normal range and I have more energy than ever. I was getting my labs done once a week and now its once a month. I did get high blood pressure from Ibrutinib so now I'm taking high blood pressure medicine but... I can't complain. My Oncologist is very pleased with my results. Next month I will have another CT Scan and BMB done so we will see how well the treatment has worked so far. Only time will tell. I really believe this clinical trial will help many others and I'm glad I made the decision. I will follow up with everyone after my next BMB. I hope everyone is doing well.. Stay positive and stay strong!
