Hi. My name is Frank and I've just joined this forum. I was diagnosed with HCL and successfully treated with cladribine back in 2003, since when I have pretty much been fine and on no medication at all.
However, since June I have been having monthly blood tests and visits to my haematologist. It now looks very likely that I will have a course of cladribine chemo in the next month or so. My key blood counts have declined, and I have experienced a couple of infections recently - night sweats, weight loss, fatigue etc.
Has anyone had the subcutaneous injection form of cladribine recently? if so, I'd be interested in hearing how it went for you. Also, I'm quite happy discussing my experiences of living with HCL with anyone, for example anyone recently diagnosed who may be worried about what the future may bring.
