CLL symptoms

I have just started chemo (BR) treatment for CLL which was diagnosed because of a knawing pain, discomfort in my upper abdomen, right under my rib cage. I also am experiencing a bloated stomach and can't put any pressure on my abdomen. My spleen is not enlared and liver appears normal in CT scans, so the doctors are puzzled about the discomfort saying it is a typical. Has anyone out there experienced similar symptoms and has treatment helped? I'm worried.

I too have this problem, but I don't know if it is attributed to my CLL. My CT scans show a cyst on my liver which it may be. I have not talked to my oncologist about it. I assumed it was gas trappped in that particular spot because it seems to come and go. I will see him on Friday and ask. Don't be worried.

I spoke to my oncologist and he told me that this is not a sympton of CLL.

At one point for about a week my stomach just didn't feel right. I had a little discomfort when the Dr pushed on my stomach but, no sharp pains.

There was something wrong, I thought so when I had an appointment with my oncologist I asked about a ct scan. I couldn't put a finger on it to describe the feeling so he agreed and of course I had the test.

There was nothing. He did say that my organs were a little bruised (that's because I squeeze into my jeans). The feeling I had dissapeared just as fast as it came. I ended up with a bill I couldn't afford.

Only you know your body.....

I am not on any treatments nor do I have any of the signs or symptoms of CLL so I was diagnosed with stage 0.
