What Are My Chances?

What Are My Chances?

I was diagnosed with CLL 7 years ago and went through chemo for 6 months and now it is in remission. I wish somebody would answer me and tell me what my life expectancy could be

Well said Brother Rolland. Only God knows the number of our days. Live for today, laugh and be thankful for each day. A young man 43 just fell over dead from a heart attack last week, he didn't know he even had heart trouble. πŸ’” Let's celebrate our lives now. !! Hugs Shadowman

Ghandi had the best answer for us! He said, β€œLive every day as if it is your Last day on Earth!, Learn every Day as if you will Live Forever!” Sic. Only God knows how many Tomorrows we may have! I have had CLL for 22 years and I’m over 84 years old and will never be cured! Count your Blessings and live our Life to its fullest s my guess! God Bless You and all your loved ones! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

I am totally with you. I had 8 months of chemo in 2009. Then remission. It started coming back in 2020. Now I take calquence. I am doing very well.
I find thinking about long I have to live a waste of time. Say a prayer, thank God for today and live on.😊

I have had CLL almost 13 years (8/26/09 diagnosed stage 4). I had IV chemo for 6 months and had almost 3 years remission. I have spent the past 7 years on chemo pills. This is my 3rd protocol. I live without worrying about the future. We go camping with friends and by ourselves. Today I turn 65 and am still living. Reading everything available years ago, I wasn't sure I would make 65. But I did! I continue to make new goals and am determined that with God and my doctor I will have many years ahead. And I have the bad markers. It makes no difference. I am living my best life (or as best as I can some days).
Trust in God and your doctors.
