Hello everyone, haven't been on here in a while...
was diagnosed with CML in 2001 and have been in Gleevec 400 mg for 9 yrs and then have been switched to Sprycel in 2010 due to resistance to Gleevec, had major improvement regarding side effects etc...now latest PCR shows increase from 0.00006 % to 0.00016...got a call from onc office, that bothered me alot...was asked if the increase was due to skipping meds, or if I was taking new interfering meds...since that is not the case, they made it seem like this was alarming and needed to be monitored more closely and have another PCR soon, and if results would not improve, switching to something else should be discussed.
Has anyone else had this problem, and has been taken off Sprycel ??
Your input would be grately appreciated!
