Just got back my PCR results and I am not thrilled. They are not terrible and I am not worried about progression or anything like that at this point, but it's not what I want, basically it looks like I may have slightly lost my MMR. To aggravate the issue I am really not doing great with side effects, I am quite miserable most of the time with muscle pain and overall just feeling lousy. Things are not going well in my life and I was at least hoping to maintain CMR and justify that it was worth it because I was getting an optimal response. I left a message for my doctor that I want to switch drugs. Obviously there is something a bit stubborn about my CML which was the last thing I wanted. I guess I'll switch to Tasigna. Hopefully it won't do more harm than good, maybe I will get lucky and my side effects will lessen and maybe I will be able to get a sustained CMR. This really sucks, talk about a way to ruin an already lousy day.
Clearly this is a step in the wrong direction, I don't like the way things keep bouncing around. I would have accepted 3 zeros, but only 2 zeros is not acceptable to me at this point. This disease is not relenting at the low level, it is still fighting trying to grow and spread.
