I am looking at the potential of some international travel from the USA to India this year for work. Have any of you made trips like this with chronic phase CML, and was it safe for you to get all of the recommended vaccines for such a trip? I have never traveled to that part of the world, so I'm sure I would need to consider most or all of the CDC's recommended traveler vaccinations. I'm on Gleevec 400mg and my CBC reflects safe numbers for WBC, etc. that are either in the normal range or close, so I don't think that I'd be at any greater risk of illness than someone without CML. It's all of the vaccines that concern me & potential reactions with either Gleevec or my residual CML (stable MMR ~ 3.5 log reduction last reported in Oct 2013).
Any experiences and advice would be really helpful. Thanks!
