Okay folks, this is it! After my blood draw today (counts are still all good) My Onc and I feel confident we'll get another negative marking this one at five full years of unwaivering PCRU tests . This time we've been instructed by Dr. Druker (he knows what we're attempting and has given his approval) to send it to OHSU for a third lab verification. After careful consideration and LOTS of reading I will reduce my dosage starting today to 200 mg of Gleevec. My normal test schedule has been bumped up from six months to three, to make sure we're on top of any changes. I will keep you all informed of my situation.
