Hi @Gbaygal and welcome.
I am caregiver for my husband who has CLL.
I have found that every case seemsto differ. Even his journey from 2007 to now has had many twists and turns.
Feel free to contact me and ask any questions. Though my husband has not had the drug you are starting he has had Chemo in 2016 and 2020 and is currently on Ibrutnib. He has just finished 9 months of Nplates.
Hi Dee, thanks for responding. I think imbruva is the same as ibrutinib. I will be getting my first dose in mail on wed. Assuming nausea and vomitting to follow but as you say, everyone is different. Heather
