Hi everyone, It's been awhile since I last posted. I'm sorry more people r joining our family. I recently went to my onc and sorry to say I'm coming out of remission. I'ts been 5 yrs so I guess I can't complain too much,I was hoping to go a few more yrs. I was told that 80% of the people will relapse between 3 and 5 yrs so I'm on schedule. The problem is I have 51% lymphocites in my blood and my wbc is up to 7 from 4 which is growing every time I see him. Wants me back in 3 mths, he talked about a pill that will be out possibly in the future maybe this summer that has been working great. I'm not sure of the name but he said I can take it the rest of my life. I hope so because I don't see me doing chemo again. Well good luck to everyone I'll keep u posted.

    Hi Kevin,

     

    Sorry to hear you're back amongst us!  I can only assume you've follicular?

     

    Dang, wish you knew the name, but then it could be for cml, etc. 

     

    Do keep us posted!

    Stay strong, Kevin. I have also experienced relapses, and what got me through was remembering that I got through the first time around! You are a survivor!
