Just wondering how long it's taken many of us to hit different milestones after DX. My thoughts are with the onset of TKI therapy, does the old thinking of quicker to respond; deeper the response = better the outcome - does that really exist anymore? Could CCyR be as good as MMR or even PCRU as long as the TKI continues to keep you stable? Is the trend more important than the level of response? I know we all want PCRU for peace of mind, but could these other milestones be enough to keep our survival rate as high? Is there any data supporting different survival rates at these different milestones since the use of TKI therapy, especially the 2nd and 3rd generation of TKI's?
I was dx 5/2011. Still waiting on CCyR, but very close and I'm stable. Not losing response. It's been 35 months.
