Fellow CMLers -
Diagnosed in late 2006 and already a veteran of several TKIs, I know the drill whenever a new TKI is started. For the first week or so, I will generally feel achy. That achiness usually subsides after a period of time, only to be replaced by some other side effect.
Having been on Ponatinib (Iclusig) for five months now - three months at 15mg/day and two months at 30mg/day, one would think the achiness would not be an issue. But, it is. For the last several weeks, I have had overall soreness. Now 60 years old, I hate to think it's because I am "older."
Has anyone felt this achiness that long into a new TKI? If so, what do you do for it? Do you take the occasional Aleve or Advil, or something else? Do you let your oncologist know? If so, what does he or she prescribe?
Thanks for listening. Looking forward to your responses.
