Hi. I'm Aliza, a Breast Cancer patient and Medical Librarian who offers services on this site and elsewhere in the form of advice (usually non medical [Librarians have a code of ethics about not providing direct responses to medical questions [this can be construed as practicing medicine without a license and is generally regarded as bad form as well as being illegal]), so you might ask what I can do and that's quite a lot actually. I offer referrals to doctors, hospitals/insitutions, agencies, etc., and research when required/requested.
(I think many of us would wonder (maybe those of us who are not medical professionals (that includes me [Medical Librarians, though we may train physicians how to search, are not considered medical professionals]) what "chemo pills" are - are they "chemotherapy" or some kind of adjuvant therapy such as we Breast Cancer patients take for 5 or more years often following chemotherapy?
I can, certainly with my research skills, go on and research what you've asked, but I don't know what type of leukemia you have (my late father and uncle had CLL). I don't know your gender (don't know if this can factor in, nor your age). I'm also wondering if you have side effects from taking the pills that bother you? So there are a variety of variables that need to be considered in researching the answer to such a question in order to get an answer that is completely valid for you.. I'm happy to do the research for you, but I'll need that additional information. Feel free to email me offsite via email if you'd prefer to keep these things private. I'd understand completely!
Btw, I don't know if there is a "normal" in this highly subjective world of cancer. I think it depends seriously on where you're treated, and upon whom your oncologist is and what she/he thinks is in your best interests. There's not necessarily a cookie cutter approach for everyone!
Whatever you choose to do, I wish you the best possible outcome. Please let me know if I can be of assistance.
