Hello everyone. I was diagnosed with CML about 3 weeks ago. I was having pain in my abdomen. The doctor ordered blood tests. I got a call at home with the results and was told to get to an ER right away. My WBC was 268. The ER was able to diagnose me with Leukemia. Pretty scary to say the least.
So here I sit at home on short term disability taking Tasigna. I have only had a couple labs but the WBC has drop to near normal so hopefully it is going to work for me.
I have a few side affects even though I have only been on the drug for two weeks. I have headaches (mild), fatigue and bone pain. The bone pain or joint pain is mostly in my hips. All my symptoms are minor except for the bone pain. It is really bad and makes it very difficult to get around. Does this pain eventually subside? Is there anything safe to take for it?
