Hi all! Last time I posted was just before my 6 month benchmark, and I was dealing with low blood counts and had a few drug breaks and had dose lowered to 50mg dasatinib. Thanks again for all the info and encouragement then! It seems slowly the counts are getting to almost normal levels at this dose!
My test results at 6 months: 0/20Ph+, PCR 25% (IS). Doctor didnt really know what to make of this, but he says CCyR is the gold standard for a good prognosis.
We did a FISH test (7 months) which turned out to be 4%. Just today I received my 9 months results: FISH 8%.
I was expecting 0% after hearing how well dasatinib can work at lowered doses, so a bit disappointed. We raised dose now to 70, with the aim for 100 if safe... but now I am starting to doubt if dasatinib is working, or if all the drug breaks and low dose has induced some resistance? Am I losing response? Am I just stuck at this level of response (CCyR bordering on partial)? Would appreciate some words of wisdom!
