Hi, my mum was diagnosed in May and has had 2 rounds of chemo. I've been to her consultant appointments but don't really know what if any is the plan for her.....she's 75. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hi Hendy226,

Can I just ask what you mean about two rounds of treatment? Normally treatment for CML is oral tablets which are taken every day continuously?
