Hi: I did get good news on my PCR test, but my other numbers are all over the place. My doctors have come to the conclusion that I am bleeding somewhere like a ulcer. My HGB is down to 9.6, and my WBC that was always around 3.5 has gone up to 5.5 in a few weeks along with a increase in my Platelets from 119 to 239. So something else is going on with me now.
I did get the permission to lower my dose of Gleevec to 200mg, but I am going to wait till I find out what this other problem is. She wants me to repeat the PCR test etc. in Oct rather than Jan to see how I do on the 200mg. My concern is I do not want two things interfering with my results. If I stay on the 400mg for now I can see why the numbers are doing what they are doing.
I am just at my wits end with all that has been happening now for the past few months.
I need prayer more than medication right now.
I was wondering if anyone else has run into something like this with a Ulcer Etc. I am also on the blood thinner for the blood clot in my leg, so I am being monitored on that also.
