Do any of the members have this problem?? My husband does. He was diagnosed 17 years ago, but only told about p17 deletion about 2 years ago when he required treatment for cll and could not have chemo. The treatment he was given was 100mg of prednisilone for 3 months which resulted in 4 fractured vertebrae because he was not given alandronic acid or adcal to help prevent osteoporosis.

Now, things have settled down, but his white cells are on the rise again and he has a couple of enlarged lymph glands. I wondered if anybody else had been down this path? yours Hazel
