It was early in treatment, but I had to stop taking my Sprycel for almost 3 weeks until my labs leveled out again. It was well into the 12th day before my platelets started to rise, and other counts did not change much, only a point or two if memory serves. One thing that seems to be important, if you are responding to the TKI's, whatever one you are on, a short break from the meds does not cause serious damage. Of course there is always the need to add the disclaimer, no one should purposely miss dosage, but your situation is different. When are your next labs, and have you spoken with your oncologist about your 9 day break? It will be interesting to see what is said, and if your immediate response has changed. I was a nervous wreck the entire 3 weeks without the Sprycel, didn't even enjoy the break from the side effects, I was too worried about the CML. Best wishes on a speedy recovery, thanks for checking in!
