I was very open and blunt with him. I ask the foloowing questions;
1 what is my expected life span
2 What organs will the meds effect
3 What organs will the cml still effect that the meds cant counter act
4 should my kids get blood work to see if they carry it
5 can I still lead a "normal life"
his answer are;
1 with the meds that are available, your lifespan wont be shortened by cml
4 no. It is unkown what causes the mutation, but it is not hereditary
5 yes. after adapting to the meds, you will only need followups to monitor blood counts.
I did have my eyes checked and the eye dr said that chemo causes a "wax" build up on theback of your eyes. this causes your vision to change. I did not go for 2nd opinion because I only need reading glasses. I didnt research to see if sprycel says anything about this. I am adapting to the meds. Still get tired quicker than I would like and hae aches, but atleast I am here with my kids.
