My husband started Ibrutinib in April after his BR chemo failed. He is 11q deleted. We were just at the doctor's this week, and his blood work came back with near normal ranges!!! His white blood count was 10.0, his red blood cells were 4.7, his platelets were 154!!! His neutrophils were 1.9 (low normal)!! His lymphycites are still very high 7.5 and 71%....but that is down as well. A year ago today, his WBC was at 160,000 and he had mouth sores, fatigue, fever, swollen nodes, skin infections, enlarged spleen, and had lost 25 pounds. For over 5 months, he was neutropenic with neutrophils at 0 to .5. So for now, this very minute......we feel encouraged, blessed and he is out golfing as we speak. Our next appt. is in A MONTH!!! Keep the faith everyone......
