Hi: I just had my 6 month check-up, and I am still PCRU which makes it 11 years this year. I hope everyone who is trying to achieve a PCRU can make it this year, but if not just be Thankful for where you are with your TKI. When I saw my Oncologist this past week, she said that she has never seen so many people who do not have to undergo a BMT because of what the TKI drugs have done for so many patients.
I just pray that something even better than a TKI comes along soon. These TKI drugs do have side effects no matter which one we take.
I am on Gleevec now for 13 years, and I still have issues after all this time. but I Thank God for each day that I have remained at PCRU.
