Hello to Everyone,
I was diognosed with CML in July of 2011. It was out of the blue and a complete shock for me and my family. Iam 44 years old and have been healthy in every way up until this.
I was started on Gleevac 400mg and have been on it ever since. My blood count was 156k at diag. IT was at 5.5k after two weeks of Gleevac.
The thing that is starting to scare me is my PCRU levels.
At 3 months I was 20%, 6 months 2.4, 7 months 1.1 and I just found out that my 9 months has risen to 1.4. I was expecting it to continue to head down, not up.
Just when I was starting to feel like things are ok this comes out and slaps me one.
Is this a sign that I'm resistent?
BTW: my fish at 5 months was 3.8. and I was CHronic at that point.
I have seen Dr. Druker two months back and my doc is the head of Hemo at Mayo clinic. I have an appt with him next Monday.
Any help would be monst appreciated.
