Asking on behalf of my husband. He’s been stage 4 cll for 2.5 years without any treatment yet, he’s 42 years old and in great shape/very active which has really helped him. He’s been very lucky but it seems like it is time now due to his blood results and spleen size. His doctor wants him to start imbrutnib but my husband does not want to take that because he has always been extremely sensitive to any pills or medications. He always gets side effects from anything he has ever taken.
Is anyone else similar with the same issues and if so how did you respond to the medication?
What other treatment options would he have?
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated!
