Diagnosed in the fall of 2013. Six rounds of chemo over 6 month period in 2016-2017 proved unsuccessful. Started on Ibrutinib capsules (3 per day) in June 2017 and with the exception of shifting bone pain, more frequent bowel movements and itchy bumps/minor rashes, the results have been very good. Wish that I could have skipped the chemo and gone directly to Ibrutinib but then again.....who knew?
Shifting bone pain has lessened significantly however itchy bumps and more frequent BM's continue.
Continue to see the oncologist every 3-months.
