Has anyone had an oral chemo called Chlorambucil? And what were the side effects?

Hi @Sonya a great big welcome to our forum, I am glad you have found us.
A very good question that unfortunately I cannot answer. I hope someone else will be able to.
The Blood Cancer UK website has a tab at the top ‘Understanding blood cancer’.
Click on that and there are all sorts of options for you to explore.
On the right hand side under ‘treatments’ there are common ‘side effects’.
If you would like to talk to someone you can contact the Support Services Team on 0808 2080 888 (Mondays: 10am-7pm, Tuesdays-Fridays: 10am-4pm, Saturday, Sundays and Bank Holidays: 10am-1pm) or via email at support@bloodcancer.org.uk
Perhaps this is also a good question for your medical team.
If you do experience side effects perhaps tell your medical team as they might be able to give you something for it.
I look forward to hearing more from you @Sonya

Hi @Sonya. How are things with you? Has your treatment started?

Hi Nichola, at the moment I am undecided as to whether or not to try this. I am going to have a short holiday break and try to get more info on possible side effects.

Morning @Sonya. Great to hear from you. It’s important that you are comfortable with the treatment isn’t it and researching and having all off the information makes complete sense, as does a break to give yourself time think.
Have a wonderful time. Keep us updated.
Take care X
