My onc. finally called me back this morning. The one who wants to up my dosage of Sprycel. I told him I was uncomfortable with his decision to up my dosage. Then asked if I am responding well to Sprycel why does he want to raise my dosage. He told me I wasn't responding well because I was still detectable. I then talked about how raising the dosage could increase serious side effects and having to take drug breaks. I said that would be going in the wrong direction. He told me I was wrong. Then I asked about how many CML patients reach PCRU in 6 months (fewer than 1%) He said I could be one of those if I raise my dose. I tried to ask more questions but he said he didn't want to argue with me. Then he said he would let me stay at 100mg Sprycel then slammed the phone down when he was done.
It was a good thing he called before I left to go lift weights. Those weights didn't have a chance today, I took my stress out on them!
