He was off TKI drugs for several months due to multiple health issues you previously mentioned. His PCR is now 20% and FISH is 85% -- both way too high. The very high ANC and WBC confirm that his leukemia is not under control. He just started Iclusig last week, so hopefully that will get him going in the right direction, but it might take a month or two to see results.
Make sure he is taking the Iclusig every day. It is very important to get this under control.

A BMB should be done any time there is a significant (1 log or more) increase in PCR and CCyR is also lost. Both are true for him. His Onc does not seem to understand CML, and he also does not keep you informed about his condition. I don't know how any Onc could allow your husband to stop TKI drugs for almost 3 months without proper supervision and intervention when he obviously lost his drug response. I realize your husband has other health concerns, but his CML must be brought under control.
