I am a 30 year old female who was just diagnosed with CLL 2 months ago during some routine tests. When I was diagnosed I was at 16,000 but when I went back this week I was at 24,000. My doctor still reassures me that I am a stage 0 and there is no treatment necessary at this time so I should stop stressing so much. Thats easier said than done doc!! I told him I wanted treatment now but he told me that treatment at my stage is available but not necessary and didnt really offer me much more info about it. I know it may sound silly but its very hard for me to sit back and not do anything towards making myself better. Has anyone in my same stage done any kind of treatments or taken any kind of medications, vitamins or supplements that they can tell me about? Im just so confused and a bit scared so Im trying to gather as much information as possible to help educate myself on my options. I figured the best people to ask would be people who have experienced it personally.
