I hope this email finds you all well. Energized, motivated and happy.
Morning meeting this week with my wife (she is the one with CML). Mixed feelings...... see below.
(CML was dx Abr 2012 with 200,000 WBC then)
Doc wants to see her again in 1 month and if no change she will study dose increase or even change of drug.
Now on Gleevec 400 mg. since the beginning. Side effects bearable.
At DX (Apr 2012): 46%
3 months: 6.3%
6 months: 0.66%
9 months: 0.53%
12 months: 0.49%
15 months: 0,24%
18 months: 0.10%
Doc says that after one month, depending on results a decision will be taken on increasing dose or switching to another drug.
Could you please help assessing these results according to your experience?
Thanks for being there.
