I have a simple but tricky question
My wife has been diagnosed with Cll 4 years ago and her nodes around the neck have gone gradually from nothing to very large (4 of them about 8cm each ) which makes her professional and social life extremely traumatic..She is 13q mutated 65 wbc 13 hemoglobin and 150 paletets with no physical health problems related to Cll .
Her hematologist has agreed to start her on Ibrutinib in January since she doesn’t want to do chemo and I see in this forum that her nodes might shrink within a month
Ma question is : How about stopping treatment when her nodes are back to normal and if it takes another 4 years to grow back ,she could be without treatment and hoping for a miracle pil to be discovered ?
Or will the nodes grow back faster this time ?
Thanks for your thoughts
