I am 47 yrs old. I was dx July 2010. I had exrutiating pain in my left shoulder and side. I thought I possibly had thrown my shoulder out of place. I went to the emergency room. My platlets were 1.1 million and WBC was at 228.......and soooo the journey began. I was living in Las Vegas when I was dx...I now reside in Washington State.....and yes it is getting chilllllyyyyy. lol.
I was on Gleevec 400mg for the first year. I started taking Sprycel 100mg the end of August........more tests in two weeks and hoping for progress!
I have a 26 year old son who is in the Marines.......has been for a few years. He is an awesome person.
I have a 12 year old daughter(I know I know)...yes it was a shocker. Lol. She is also a very good person...no touble...good grades...lots of help to me.
My husband is very supportive of me................I truly feel blessed.
Good luck to you and stay warm!
