Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). Posted on August 24, 2018 View this journey (4 Experiences)

I was diagnosed 8 years ago, have had 3 treatments and 3 remissions and am currently on my 4th treatment--Bendamustine + Rituxan. I've been lucky not to have had any of the really awful side effects (nausea, diarrhea) but I did have a high fever during the first cycle and 2 episodes of very rapid heart rate (140 bpm) during the second. Fortunately, the rapid heart rate reverts to normal after about 15 minutes. I actually feel halfway human except for the fatigue which I seem to have all the time.

Easy to Do: Agree
Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
