I'm new to the forum and relatively new to CML. I was diagnosed last January. I take 80 mg of Sprycel (easier to spell than the generic). There is a wealth of information out there. How do you sort through it and determine what is useful and what is not? Before diagnosis, I wasn't on a lot of medicine. I took supplements and was fairly healthy. My oncologist isn't a big fan of supplements because they aren't regulated and would prefer I didn't. I understand that with chemo therapy, one is limited on what they can take. If I understand correctly, Sprycel is a chemo pill, so do all the chemo regulations apply?
Does anyone do the juicing thing? Alternative treatment? If so, is it with the blessing of your oncologist? Does it have to be one way or the other?
The next question is genuine. I don't sell the specialty direct marketing, pyramid type products (like Reliv and Juice Plus) and I can see why they are banned from here. I hope this question is allowed... If not, Administrator, please removed the thread. How you deal with friends who sell that stuff? I'm presuming none of it is good.
Thank you for any help. I want to get through the threads like I said but there is a wealth of information out there and I haven't figured out a faster way to sift through it.
