I am new to the CML club (diagnosed on 4/2/2013 - stage 1). I've been on Sprycel for two weeks now, hydroxyurea for three weeks, and allopurinol for three weeks. I just got word that we're dropping the hyroxyurea from the mix which I'm happy about.
Over this last weekend, I've found that I'm noticeably more tired than usual. Wondering whether anyone in this group had a similar result in the first month. I just spoke with my doctor and he said that there are several things at this point that could be causing it from the Sprycel to the hydroxyurea to the body just dealing with the disease to the anxiety of having this diagnosis. And that once we get my counts into the right area, we will be able to better sort out some of these other related issues. That all makes perfect sense, but I'm just curious whether other folks with similar diagnoses and treatments had similar bouts of fatigue a few weeks in?
Any info is great.
