Hello this is my first post. I signed up yesterday and have been spending a lot of time reading, so much information. My history starts when I was in the hospital for 10 days due to a bad case of Pneumonia (05/2016). I never had an issue with high blood counts or anything. When I was discharged I was informed that my WBC was a little above normal. It took until October 2016 when I saw an Oncologist when I was diagnosed with CLL. My Dr. told me that I will be on the wait and see plan. In October 2016 my WBC was 17 and as of today I am at 83.3. My spleen was enlarged back in October and now it is larger. So my Dr wants to see me in 4 months to perform a third CT scan and complete blood workup. She said that it is time to start treatment. I do not know what that treatment is or entails.
I have read a lot of the postings on the use of Green Tea and Turmeric. I want to start on this as soon as possible. I read the cautions about to much Green Tea and plan to have it checked. I have read AussieNeil's comments on doses and the use of the Lipton green tea bags as additional source of EGCG. I do not know which one to get they do not state any specifications on EGCG.
