This is my first post, I was officially diagnosed with CML on July 13th, 2012....Friday the 13th to be specific. Appropriate right? I had been feeling fine, a little tired maybe but I work full time and commute so I figured that just meant that I was human - not sick. I donated platelets in June and received a call from the President and CEO of the local blood center 2 days later saying that I needed to go see my primary for another blood test because my WBC was at 32,000. I saw a hematologist/oncologist after that where I was told that it looked like I have CML. After my initial diagnosis I moved over to SCCA for treatment and have been really happy there, the doctors and nurses have been wonderful. My BMB in early August showed that I have a 3 way translocation (3;9;22) and I am still not sure what to think about that. I hear different things from different people about if/how that will effect my path with CML. Does anyone have any experience with this? I am only 28 and have not started a family yet but really want to have children. I contacted the LIVESTRONG foundation in August and applied for their assistance to do an egg harvest before I start treatment. I was approved for that and just put 15 eggs on ice last Friday. So now I am on to the last step and I am nervous. I start 600 mg of Gleevec 1 week from today. I am afraid of what it will feel like and how this will all impact my life down the road. Can anyone tell me what to expect in that first week or so? I will take my first dose at work...is that a bad idea? Should I stay home just in case?
