I certainly don't want to seem like I am complaining, but I have a question that nags at me about continued symptoms.
Diagnosed November 2010. Immediately went on Gleevec (400mg) and that evened things out. After a year, my bone marrow biopsy showed no sign of the chromosone, so basically everything is fine.
So just a small complaint/question for the gang...
I am still experiencing night sweats. Never had them before diagnosis, but now very frequently. Doc says not to worry, unless there are other symptoms. Is anyone experiencing something like this? I would have assumed that once my blood counts went back to normal I would not have this problem.
Also, on a related topic...
Now that I have evened out, it just nags me that I have to take this pill everyday. I am 40 years old and the Gleevec makes me nauseated for about 30-45 minutes daily when I take it. I try with food and without... It's not debilitating, but just tough looking forward to the next half of my life with this hanging over my head.
Believe me, I am thankful that these small issues are all I am dealing with, but just thought this crowd would understand better than family/friends.
