Hello, I'm 27 & have been diagnosed with CLL for almost a year now. Since Christmas I have spent more time being unwell with cold symptoms or chest infections than I have been well. I've currently got my third chest infection which is worse than the previous two with flu like symptoms such as shaking and feeling so cold. I know people with CLL are more prone to infection but how much am I meant to put up with? Should I be telling my consultant? I am due back to work in March as a community staff nurse after being off for over a year due to needing major bowel surgery. I just can't see how I can hold down a job when I'm constantly getting ill myself let alone caring for other sick people as a nurse!??
