My question is centered on expectations and bone marrow results. What is the expected bone marrow cellularity after 8 months of Imbruvica and 6 months of Gazyva infusions? My bone bone marrow cellularity before initial treatment were at 95% and after now are at 65%. I was hoping for more of a obliteration than a reduction, but maybe my expectations were off.
My other tests all came back great, lymph nodes shrunk and no other cancer detectable with the PET scan. I understand that Imbruvica continues to work at the cancer, but I am wondering if I should be seeing better results in the bone marrow after 8 months of Imbruvica and 6 Gazyva treatments? Thoughts?
