Joined the CML Club three years ago today. Easy to remember the day - anniversary of the first moonwalk. Went to the ER with "heart" symptoms. Ended up getting the good news - bad news - good news. The good news is your heart is fine. The bad news is you have blood cancer. The good news is that it's the "good" kind of blood cancer.
Have been on Sprycel since the beginning and it has been doing a good job keeping me at "undetectable" levels. The side effects are crummy at times, but I have been steadily learning how to minimize and manage them.
I have visited this forum almost daily for three years. I would like to thank LLS for providing this opportunity for all of us to share info. And of course I would like to thank all of you for sharing your experiences. This place has been a great source of comfort and information for me.
Here's wishing everyone continued good health and many happy days...
