Has anyone had issues with developing hematomas while on Ibrutinib?
I started the med on August 28th and almost immediately started bruising from even the tiniest bump...nasty bruises with hard knots in the middle of each bruise. I developed a large hematoma on my right side from bumping against the corner of my desk...it was very painful, red, hot, and swollen. Thought that one was bad until I accidentally popped the back of my right hand against my car door...wow! It has been 3 weeks, and I had to have my hand put in a splint last week to try and help it heal. My fingers are black and blue and still very swollen. My oncologist was so disturbed by what was going on (along with the migrating joint swelling and pain) that she took me off the Ibrutinib and is considering another treatment option. Funny thing...in one week of being off the med, my WCC dropped from 416 down to 88!
