Last Friday met with Onc, and it is true! Undetectable on PCR!! So hoped this would happen.
Thank you millions to all of you on this board!!! I was so scared at the first. This has been my go to place for reliable information and comfort. Thank you so much!! Thanks for sharing your good times and the bad and a special shout out to Trey for amazing expertise.
The stats: DX Oct. 2011 WBC highest at 17K 15/15 cells Ph+
Started Tasigna Dec 2011 at 600, reduced to 300 then to 450. Been on 450 the last few months.
CBC is all in normal ranges.
Side effects still here, mostly fatigue and ultra sensitivity to mosquito bites. But so livable and feeling better every few weeks.
A side note: the reason my sign in name is A_1derful_Wrld is this: The night I decided to join this board I was so afraid of all this and so consumed with it, terrified to take that first pill. As I worked on signing up, on Pandora the song that came up was Louis Armstrong singing What a Wonderful World. As he sang: I see trees of green.....red roses too....and so on....it was just what I needed to hear at that moment. It reminded me life would go on and that all those wonderful parts of life were still there, even if I could not see them at the moment. It's been a good reminder every time I log on.
Love to you all,
Here's the song:
