Welcome to the UK Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia Forum (UKCLLForum)
Welcome to the UK's only specific forum for the patients, families, friends and carers of those diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL).
About This Forum
The UK Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia Forum (UKCLLForum) has been created specifically for the patients, families, friends and carers of those diagnosed with CLL within the United Kingdom. We recognise the specific needs and wishes of these members and have designed this website to satisfy this criterion. We also appreciate that because this medical condition affects those generally over 55 years old, there may be a reluctance to use such a resource as this, and in addition, the British culture is a little more reserved than other countries. We would therefore strongly urge you to overcome these obstacles and subscribe to this forum.
The forum is simple to use, utilising a fairly formal structure to enable new members to look through previous topics on specific subjects. For instance all posts relating to Shingles will be found in a thread specifically named Shingles.
We have even included an Off-Topic Board for those that would like to use this facility.
It is also easy to create a new topic by simply selecting the 'New Topic' icon.
We have had to include a login facility to prevent unauthorised use by spammers or people trying to sell specific products. We all know that this can be a little inconvenient, but I would assure you that we have kept the required details to an absolute minimum. We will therefore only ask you for:
- A username.
- Your First and Second name, but there is no reason why these can't be the same as your username or even an alias.
- Your sex.
- Your email address. This is necessary so that we can mange the forum and prevent inappropriate use and provided details of threads posted to the forum.
Please be assured that we will not under any circumstances publish your details or share them with any other party. We want the members that use this forum to feel fully protected and we have taken preventative measures to ensure this.
There are no advertising banners or other forms of advertising whatsoever on this forum.
Finally, it will take time for this forum to establish itself within the UK CLL community, we therefore ask for your continued support in any way that you can.

Just an update, after over 30days of waiting for my dentist for an emergency appointment the dentist finally saw me and once again did not take seriously the fact that the tooth had lost the repair and the other one had half a repair intact, the fact that I have high blood counts were not considered and still delayed the process even further, I finally had to go to another dentist who referred me to a dental surgeon.
A full mouth xray exposed a even worse situation on the left side, it appears the swelling I had brought to the attention at the time just before the dx back in 2008/09 was an infected molar which has been busy infecting me all along but the other tooth behind was extracted instead.
So now on the 91 st day after I had ask for an emergency appointment the 2 molars on the right side have been extracted on the 21st December, on the 18th January next Wednesday the one on the left will be extracted. I was given the option of a root canal treatment of the molar on the left hand lower side but I refused, I want the tooth extracted and by doing so I hope to prove my theory that the source of the so called CLL is dental. Oh once again must mention NO TOOTHACHE PRESSENT and it turns out all the 3 molars which are finally been attended to are NOT ROOT CANALS either. So the no pain issue may be the reason why the dental source of our so called CLL goes unnoticed.
