This is a nasty disease - it just won't go away.
My 3 month PCR doubled from last test. I lost my zero. The measurment is easily within the one log error range for the test, but that's little comfort.
I had hoped my trend would continue downward. Instead I am either flat or its trending upward. I wait to hear from Dr. Cortes on whether I should increase my to 40mg. or just stay the course at my current 20mg.
There is one difference I did from last test (3 months ago) - I added 400mg. Resveratrol to my diet. It may be possible that the Resveratrol is interfering with the Sprycel. Resveratrol is a strong anti-oxidant and theoretically could scavange the Sprycel. I am debating whether to stop taking it and see what my PCR levels become in 3 months (while staying on 20mg. Sprycel). I have not found any data, however, on Sprycel interaction with Resveratrol (good or bad). I still take Curcumin (may increase it, in fact).
I am coming to terms that this will be a lifelong battle for me with Sprycel or some other drug in my life for a very long time. It is so contrary to my nature - but that's the way it is.
I'll have to find other experiments to try.
