Good morning everyone!

After 9 weeks off Sprycel due to PE my PCR was 1.6% IS (increase from 0.02%). Today, after 3 months of reduced dosage (50mg.) my PCR is .5% IS. That's in keeping with my usual less than Jack rabbit results, but it's going in the right direction so I'm happy!

Have a great weekend everyone!

DX 12/08; Gleevec 400mg; liver toxicity; Sprycel 100mg.; CCyR 4/10; MMR 8/10; Pleural Effusion 2/12; Sprycel 50mg. Maintaining MMR; 2/15 PCRU; 8/16 drifting in and out of undetected like a wave meeting the shore. Retired 12/23/2016! 18 months of PCRU, most recent at Mayo on 7/25/17 was negative at their new sensitivity reporting of 0.003.<p>
