One month on Acalabrutinib knocked my nodes down to less than half and my WBC from 82,000 to 62,000.
Started the Obinutuzumqb arm yesterday with the 1/10th dose, with side effects only from the Benedryl. From yesterday to today, on only 1/10th the dose, I went from a white blood cell count of 62,000 to 17,000 in this morning’s test. Normal range is in the high 9ks on their scale. I got the rest of that full dose today with no side effects! They think I’ll be in the normal range when I get back next Thursday! Neuts up a little (probably from steroid prophylactic). Globulin counts up a little. Neck node down to almost nothing in 24 hours! Scream-singing to “Afterglow” by Genesis on the car ride home from Dana-Farber. Loving life!!!
