I'm feeling real down right now and I need some positive encouragement. I had my first oncologist appt. yesterday to review my first month on Sprycel and my oncologist stated that based on my last four weeks blood results it seems that I'm doing good so far; however, he strongly suggested that I consider a bone marrow transplant as an option and he also said that he's going to start the process to get ready for it in the event that Sprycel does not work for me after we evaluate my first major blood test results which it is scheduled for the first week in May. As you can see that's not what I was hoping to hear from him after my first month on Sprycel. I've been feeling better than I did on Gleevec, I have more energy and my side effects are not that bad. My white cells are under control at the moment. Can an oncologist predict what's going to happen to a patient after evaluating the first month blood test results? Any feedback you can provide would ge greatly appreciated!
