Hi, everyone! Got the call on my PCR results yesterday - exactly the same as it has been the two times before - .2% I can't really be upset (or surprised) because after 2.5 years at 100 mg. I didn't reach PCRU, but I was at least quite a ways below MMR.
I'm in a quandry - because of my recent scare with air hunger similar to the way I felt when I had the pleural effusion no one is really interested in bumping me up to 70 mg. Because of my liver issues on Gleevec, I'm hesitant to switch to Tasigna and also deal with brand new side effects once again, and Bosutinib, which is similar to Sprycel, may also be more inclined to cause effusion, ditto the new side effects. Plus, 50 mg. of Sprycel is half the cost of 70 - 100 mg. of Sprycel.
I would be interested in thoughts any of you may have. I'm not really concerned, I'm just open for suggestions.
Marnie mentioned dandelions in a different post - I would be happy to see dandelions!
