Lisa’s Story

This content was current as of the date it was released. In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge.

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.
