Just got back from the CLL specialist to who we went for the second opinion.
Background: 146k WBC, bone marrow showed 14p only, swollen lymph nodes and enlarged spleen, 68 years old.
The doctor suggested FCR will be most efficient but due to the age we will try Ibrutinib (which is a relief since I did not want to go for chemo)
The doctor said we still have several months...so we will be doing the blood work on monthly basis and start somewhere after New Year I guess. I am a bit relieved.
The bad news, there was a clinical trial, mom did not qualified for, so now I need to work double to deepen my pockets enough for unlimited supply of Ibrutinib...
