Thanks for all the replies guys!!(And girls)
Pam: Not sure how it will go yet, but im starting up slow next week with only one work day pr week, and not on shifts to start with.
Dan: Seems like you are doing well combining work with tki therapy, and that changing timezones seems manageable even on a tki.
Trey: Fatigue is actually the worst side effect i have at the moment, but i hope it will get better before i start working shifts.
Cliffee: Thanks for the tips, i do a 30minute walk or bike ride each day, i feel better when im in movement Also my diet hasnt been the greatest, i dont exactly eat unhealthy, but i guess i could eat a bit more healthy. As for the sleep, there is my damn mind, witch wanders off into not so nice places when i try to sleep (anxiety), but it seems to be getting better and better.
Happycat: My biorhthyms have been messed up for many years cause of the shitwork, but i have kind of liked working nights
I might ask my employer to keep my on a daytime job for a while, to see how working and CML go`s. I think i would have to take my Gleevec at dinner time for it to work with the shifts, then i could take it at home or at work, i just have to remember taking it
Billie M: Taking tki without any other meds is something i like to do aswell, i always let there go a few hours between Gleevec and anything else. I also have been thinking about taking my tki at dinner time if im going to return to shiftwork. Peppermints, mmmmm, i always have 2 different flavor candy in my pocket at all times, one is peppermint Also ive started to take a small piece of pickled ginger each day (the one you get with sushi), and that seems to have helped. (Or its just the body that has adjusted to G better)
Overcast: First let me start by telling how sorry i am Gleevec didnt work out for you as you had hoped, as the side effects on 400mg werent bad for you. Lets cross our fingers, and hope Gleevec will work in the next 3 weeks before starting Sprycel. If not, im certain Sprycel or Tasigna will work well, man its good to have options, lets be thankfull that we got CML in 2012 and have those options.
I had major amounts of B12 in my body, so im not sure about the B12 shots, but im sure a good healthy diet will help alot.
Im glad to say you got better after 2 months, i am there now, and im hoping for some improvement soon.
