It's working already: Ibrutinib (PCI-32765)
Also getting waves of nausea and feeling plain lousy and diarrhea so I know the medication is for real, but it is nothing that I can't manage.
Monday I am at the clinic and will see if the less biased examining fingers of my treatment team confirm my findings of diminishing nodes that I discovered when I showered this morning.
I also expect that those nasty B cells had to go somewhere, so my absolute lymphocyte count should be quite a bit higher when they do the blood work. That's a good thing.
Maybe, just maybe, this is the beginning of the end.
This is very promising news.
Now I must remember to enjoy but under react.
