Wondering if I can get some suggestions and recommendations.
Was DX July 2011 and started on 400 Gleevac. I understand I am a slow responder but now I'm reaching that point on whether to stay the coarse or switch to another drug. I have no side effects other than slightly puffy eyes.
My Doctor at Mayo says he fine either way but if I want to start hoping to see PCRU one day and be eligable to stop meds a switch might need to be in order. He also said that since I'm CCyr long term that's what matters most and there is now evidence that proves it.
Dr. Druker has also said two months go that he is reasonably satisfied with my results so far for the time Ive been on Gleevac.
What to do?
3 months 53% International /20% Mayo
6 months 6.1 Int. /2.3 Mayo
7 months 2.9 Int. /1.1 Mayo
9 months 3.7 Int. /1.4 Mayo
11 months 4.5 Int/1.7 Mayo
Upped to 600 Gleevac
12months CCyr Bone marrow results.
14 months 2.1% Int. /.8 Mayo
16 months 1.3& Int. /.5 Mayo
18-19 months 1.6& Int / .6 Mayo
Thanks for the help!
