Do any of you have a terrible immune system, lots of cols etc? If so what do you do?
I have just recently found this site and am so relieved to hear that others are having the same issues as I. It is very comforting. You all seem to be so much more educated about CML than I am. I am learning a lot. I was diagnosed in Jan of 2009 with CML. Since that time I have been hospitalized/treated for
H Pylori, C Diff, de hydration and had gallbladder surgery. I wasn't able to eat for 5 months and after hospitalization was put on TPN for nutrition, for several months. I have always loved food too much and couldn't believe that I wasn't able to eat. At this time I was on Gleevec. I finally went to the Huntsman Cancer Center in Salt Lake City Utah and they changed me to Sprycel. I am doing somewhat better and have a BMB scheduled this coming Thursday. If seemshowever if I leave the house I get sick. Since the end of December I have had 3 colds and bronchitis once. It seems as soon as I get well for a few days I am sick again. I wash constantly, use Purell and try to have little contact with others. Any ideas? Thanks!
