I have read different posts on this subject but really never have got a straight answer from reading or actually researching it.
before CML my husband and I would up town 3-4 nights a week for beer at happy hour. we would have 3 or 4 beers and sometimes even 6-7
getting CML in March of this year, I just stopped, it wasnt fun anymore. I was worried it was going to effect my treatment plan. (Actually everything i do
im scared it will effect it, as of course I do not want to slow down any treatment progress).
and I have stuck too that. I asked my Onc about it and when i told him how much i did drink he just said ok and went on
and he said that was fine.
I am on 600 Tasigna a day
one of our favorite things to do is go to the casino. so a couple weeks ago that is just what we did, I felt great and i had enough of staying home, time to lilve again
so i told my husband lets just go have some fun, and that exactly what we did... I had about 7-8 beers and we had the best time and i finally felt normal!
and on top of that, no headache and I felt great the next day! i was worried about that, but carried on the next day like never had a drink.
that was friday and monday i had labs - they were perfect, liver has never been so good, best lab results in a very long time. the next monday same thing.
I get my liver results along with my CBC results. another thing, I have absolutely no side effects to Tasgina, Im tired, but I have been tired for so long, thats my norm.
So really what is the deal here.
I did go on the tasigna interactions and didnt find any
I know that tasigna and alcohol is hard on the liver, and large qtys probably are not what a person wants to do but....there has to be a happy medium here.
I am not going back to going up town like we used too, but we are going on a two month trip in december and i would love to get your opinions
I just want to know, how much is too much, what can i feel comforable at without worring. and any other input you might have.
When we went to the casino, I just said, that is enough, what ever happens happens, I guess I had been feeling sorry for myself long enough and time to live
not die. I finally told myself, this is not a death sentence, it is a life changer. but i want to be sure Im not going to mess anything up.......
