Hi: I went for my 6 month check-up today, and I am PCRU again for the 10th year, and my platelet count came up a little bit as well as my kidney functions were better. I discussed reducing my dose of Gleevec from 400mg, but the doctor will not budge on this issue. She said every patient that she has let reduce their dose had to go back up to 400mg as they lost their PCRU status. She said until something better comes along with all the trials they are doing she wants me to just keep doing what I have been doing.
I am just not feeling good with some other problems, so I did not argue with her. I will just keep an eye on the blood work for now.
I am going to make an appointment right now for a Endoscopy, as I am sure I have a Hiatal Hernia or a Ulcer?? Been so miserable with the stomach pain and pressure.
Just Thanking God for another good Blood Test, and leaving it up to him. I have lived with my side effects which have been less than a lot of others have had. I know some will not agree with me, but I do not want to mess up a good thing either.
