I have been taking gleevec for about six months now and everything was going okay just a few side effects with gleevec ans this weekend I h ad surgery to remove my appendix. The doctor told me to stop taking gleevec until I recover from surgery. I'm concerned that if i stop taking gleevec is going to set me back. Has anyone a similar exprience? Also, do you think gleevec caused thi surgery?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
