Lisa’s Story

In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge. All articles and interviews are informational only, should never be considered medical advice, and should never be acted on without review with your health care team.

I was diagnosed February 6, 2018. I began immediate treatment for B-symptoms (have had them since 2008) – completed 6 of ten rounds Rituxan (had to stop due to Rituxan-induced colitis).  My oncologist failed to determine mutated/unmutated status – she was fired. I now see a CLL Specialist. Relapsed at 10 months – have not had treatment since relapsing (4 months now.)

Hope this helps.
