Today marks a year ago I was dx with CML. While it has been a crazy year with many ups and downs there were many silver linings too. I am very grateful for my family, friends, medical team, including this message board family and all the comfort and advise you guys gave over the course of this last year. After six months of being suboptimal on Gleevec and now six months of Tasigna where I have reached CCyR I am definitely returning back to my old life of 'normalacy'.
I had an oncologist appointment this week where a PCR was done (still waiting on results) but I found that I had this overwelming feeling while talking to my doctor that I was alive due to the decisions/actions made my her. Has anyone ever felt that way about their oncologist? I know I have never felt that way about any doctor in my life before up until this point.
Anyway just wanted to say thanks. I made the mistake of celebrating by seeing the moving 50/50 tonight. While it was a good movie it definitely is a little heavy so prepare yourself if you go to see it.
