Hi everyone. I have some recent results I wanted to share with you regarding the clinical trial I'm on with IB and Venetoclax.
The good news is my numbers look good almost in normal range. If you were going by numbers alone you would say that the treatment is working wonderfully and I should be feeling really good about it..... BUT.. I have had little side effects up until now. The bad news is I recently went to my Dermatologist to have some red spots on my skin looked at and I was told I have Psoriasis. I also have Basal cell Carcinoma. Yes...skin cancer. I will have to have surgery done to remove the cancer. I'm wondering if anything else will happen now while I'm on the treatment. Im not sure if the treatment caused this or maybe my CLL just sped up the inevitable. I did spend many days out in the sun growing up in California and Florida. Unfortunately I won't be as lucky as some on the clinical trial like my CLL buddy Hoffy and others. But I will keep fighting the good fight and I will not let these things bring me down. Not everyone will experience what I have but i just thought i would share my story with you. I just had a CT Scan and BMB done so I'm waiting on those results. It would be nice to get some good news. 😁
