What Treatment Available For Cll I'm Watching And Waiting For Now My Blood Count Is Still Decent

A MyLeukemiaTeam Member said:

I want to tell everyone about a possible therapy for chronic lymphocyte leukemia. My oncologist knew I was not interested in chemotherapy so he gave me a paper telling about Neem leaf extract inducing cell death by apoptosis in chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells. I ordered some from iherb.com and have been taking it since December 24th. The oncologist did not give me any instructions as to the dosage so I have been taking half of the eye dropper full every day 3 times a day. It is bitter so I mix it with about half of a small cup of water. I don't see him again until April but meanwhile I have noticed the lymph nodes on my neck that I can feel are starting to decrease. Your doctor probably won't approve this because of course they get a portion of the chemotherapy cost. My white blood cell count was around 22,000 and so those in the earlier stages of Leukemia might be interested in this. Cost was $9 per month!

How expensive is the Ventclax? I was thinking of trying Imbruvica but it costs $1300 pr month. And, they said I would have to take it for the rest of my life.
