I am happy to report, for those interested in hearing about my being off all TKIs since September 14, 2011, after being PCRU for two years, that at my appointment today with my Onc I was shown the reports that all of my CBC and CMP levels are completely normal. And . . .
. . . I am posting my actual PCR test result, as I'm too proud of it to just write it out! My last PCR test was unreadable or something, so my last PCR result was in June 2012, prior to Quest Diagnostics' switch to IS (Int'l Standard) reporting. There was a concern that perhaps with the new reporting in IS, there might be something measurable, but in fact I have tested, by Quest, 0.000 since September 2009, after four months on Sprycel (preceded by seven months on-and-off Gleevec). I was dx'd in October 2008 with WBC 459k.
Whew! Thanks for the ongoing support and interest This situation is amazing to me. I may raise my hand and report at the CML conference in SF on Feb. 9th, just to share how amazing the treatment of CML is becoming for those of us fortunate enough to respond fast and well. Wishing perfect health to each and everyone!
