Hi, Cathy. . .
My numbers are something like this (my record-keeping hasn't been as good as it should have been in the past year. . .work is just about killing me).
0.002 (started Sprycel January)
Unfortunately, there are some issues with my numbers because for the first few years, it was not IS. . .so those numbers are pretty meaningless, except to compare with my own trend and also, my results came from a variety of labs, especially in the first few years. . .so again. . .the numbers are not particularly meaningful. I also do not have a starting number, as my initial onc only did a qualitative PCR test before I started Gleevec. I have my next PCR in December, and I'm getting a little anxious about it. After starting back on Sprycel (I was off for over a month because of pleural effusion and then the doc wanted me to have a battery of tests for lung function, because I was still having breathing issues) I did a few days of 100 mg before dropping back to 50. Did that without doc's knowledge. . .I just started getting really paranoid and wanted to give the darned Ph+ cells a kick in the butt.
Anyway. . .when I look at my numbers as a whole. . they don't look all that bad. And I'm a lot more comfortable now with the idea of not being PCRu, but being close.
Hope that helps!
