My pcr is at .2% on Mayo's scale, .5% on the IS. So I finally have a 2 log reduction. I would rather have 3, but really, really hoping for that at 12 months.
My hgb is continuing to drop, and we've already ruled out low iron, B12, folate, and thyroid. My onc thinks it's either a side effect of the Tasigna or a bone marrow dysfunction unrelated to the CML or Tasigna, with the first being more likely. If it's still dropping at my 12-month appt, I'll probably have a bmb to see if anything abnormal shows up. It's disappointing, because when my hgb got up into the normal range in November, I felt fabulous. Now, I'm tired all the time, but it's not low enough for a transfusion.
