This is the first time I have posted so I'll explain a little about myself.
My husband has for many years had Chonic Lymphocytic Leukaemia, which was until september of this year in remission. After feeling very unwell and losing a great deal of weight, the hospital finally gave Philip a CT Scan and found he had a very enlarged node in his abdoman and an enlarged spleen and liver.
Philip has just had his 4th treatment at a reduced level due to high calcium levels in his blood, and generally feeling very weak. He has also realised that his lower lip and chin as gone completely numb making it difficult to eat and drink, which does not help the weight lose approx 5 stone to date. My question is how do you know if treatment is working or not, because its Christmas I am finding it hard to talk to the people in charge of Philip's case, and cannot get any real answers, They do not even seem to be concerned with his lip and chin at all.
