Good evening everyone,
New to this site but very familiar with CML, my husband, Tom was diagnosed with CML in August, 2002, and has been on 800mg of Gleevec ever since. He has managed through with all of the side effects and still maintains an undetectable level of CML. Recently he has had a lot of trouble with stomach acid and heartburn which keeps him up all night. He has had an endoscopy which revealed he has numerous polyps in his stomach. Several were removed and the other biopsies revealed precancerous tumors; he has an appointment in a few weeks to discuss further treatment options. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced similar issues. The doctor said he doesn't believe this is CML related, which might be true, but I'm sure 13 years of Gleevec has something to do with it. Your thoughts are appreciated.
