I was diagnosed ten years ago with CLL that did not require any treatmant at the time. Through the years I was upgraded to stage 0 than stage 1. About 5 months ago I went in for a hernia operation which was stopped because of my blood count. I'm now at stage IV and started FCR chemo three weeks ago. I've been very sick since and was told by my Doctor that the first two weeks I would be extremly sick which was true. I receive all three chemo drugs on day 1, two more on day2, and two more on day 3. On day 4 I receive a shot. This repeats after three weeks and have been told that it will be done for 6-9 months. My question is this third week that was suppose to be my best is turning out to be bad. I'm very tired and weak and my bones hurt very bad. Has anyone else expererieced the same thing. I was told that I might be able to work (at a high school) for the last two weeks but the way I feel that would be impossible.
