I am still Sore after almost 7 months on Tasigna. my knees hips and hands ache constantly I have been on a half dose of tasigna for 3 weeks now and its still the same?? I suppose it will take some time to adjust to the new dose. I actually am more tired on the lower dose?? Go figure. Ive been seeing a deep tissue massage therapist that has helped allot! which is weird because the pain is sooo deep. I also underwent a bunch of testing for R.A( Rheumatoid arthritis) I kept throwing a positive for it, but turns out I do not have it, its just the lovely side affects of our TKI'S. I think I spend half my life in my jet tub after work for some relief Hope you find something that works for you. I'm just glad to be alive as I'm sure you are too
Diagnosed Oct 2013 Started 600mg of Tasigna on Nov 4th. Lowered dose a few months later to 300mg due to side affects stayed here declining PCR until March 2015 small jump from 0.0072 to 0.0083 scarred my doc into full dose of Tasigna again 600mg(been miserable since) but reached PCRU 06/15/2015(next test) and have been there ever since. Hoping to have another little one. I have the support of my doc to go off anytime, just scared to jump. might go two years PCRU but he said it wont make much of a difference. I just figured I could possibly go into a trial while preggers if I got the two years behind me.
