Hi all - I have Stage IV colorectal and normally post on that board. A very good friend of mine has been diagnosed with Stage 0 CLL. She is on the "watch and wait" plan. I gather this is normal, but wanted to check it out with you guys. So far she feels well - she had one negative CT, then developed a thyroid nodule (biopsied negative) and her onc is upping her CT / blood work schedule.

I'd like to hear what you all are doing as far as monitoring / treatment goes.


Stage IV CRC, diagnosed 5/05
