Four weeks in

Going well, tolerating the drug (Ibrutinib) well. The knee and ankle pain has largely passed thanks to the steroids. Consultant says blood are OK and has approved me to go back on the schedule for the implant surgery.

One week in

One week into the new treatment.

Last week was tough, particularly Thursday and Friday. My ankles got sore and swelled up, my knees got sore so that I could barely walk. I was prescribed a hefty dose of steroids which I started Saturday and which worked pretty quickly, by Sunday I was walking freely again. I have had no other side effects and the swollen glands in my neck have gone right down. Had bloods today and the key indicators are all heading the right way.

So far so good!
