I am a CLL patient.
I have been previously treated with FR regimen for CLL. (Rituximaba plus Fludarabina)
After 2.5 years, the WBC are around 30 K/ul, and platelets around 41 K.
Doctors have decided to treat me again.
Due to cost, unsufficient Insurance coverage, it is not possible to go to Imbruvica.
I have two options:
1- Reapet FR scheme. (Rituximab plus Fludarabina)
2- Obinutuzumab plus chlorambucil.
My Doctor recommends 2nd Option.
According to my Doctor, Obinutuzmab (gazyvo) can be used also for patient previously treated.
Can anyone give some clue/advice about this.
