Hi! I just finished my fourth month of treatment. 100mg of Sprycel. I also had thyroid papillary carcinoma in September resulting in a total thyroidectomy, which added hormone supplements to my regime! Synthroid (t4) and Cytomel (t3).
I went to my doctor for our annual insurance physical exam and I just got the call about my blood work. Everything looks good except my Vitamin D and B12 which I had asked her to check for me.
She wants to put me on a prescription of Vitamin D for one month and then supplements after that. For the B12 she wants me to have weekly injections for the first month and then monthly after that.
I never asked for these levels to be checked before CML and Sprycel so I could have had theses deficiencies before, but does anyone know if it's a cause of it? Have any of you had the B12 injections and will either of these interfere with the Sprycel? I plan on calling my onc tomorrow but wondered if anyone else here had experience in this? it's hard to figure out what is just me, the Sprycel, The CML, the thyroid meds, or the missing thyroid these days!
