Diagnosed recently cll stage 0 but just started having abdominal pain left side, feeling bloated. Wbc 13, 000. Will i need chemo if nodes in abdomen?

Diagnosed recently cll stage 0 but just started having abdominal pain left side, feeling bloated. Wbc 13, 000. Will i need chemo if nodes in abdomen?

Here's an idea: Today, it's customary to subtype cll by its genetic markers. It's actually about a dozen different diseases, some aggressive, some not. I'll bet that your hematologist has already done this, and your tumor mutation / translocation profile will be more helpful as a guide to treatment. Whether your spleen is big or not is much less of a factor than other parameters. ...Read more

Stop the Bupropion : What you are experiencing sounds like an adverse medication side effect. Angioedema (throat swelling/laryngeal edema) is not a common side effect of burpropion, seen in less than 1% of individuals who take it, and you may be one of them. Stop the medication now (can be lethal) and report side effects to your doctor asap. If you added something new to your diet, that could explain it too. ...Read more

My 14 yr old son gets daily heartburn no matter what he eats. Normal upper and lower GI scope. Slight pain left side of stomach when applying pressur?

Possible stress.: Since you mentioned he had a normal upper and lower GI scope, he must be seeing a gastroenterologist. Is he on any medication? Did he get tested for bacteria during the endoscopy? Stress is one of the most common causes of this symptom, which is from excess acid production. I would recommend that you discuss this again with his doctor. ...Read more
