Just got back from onc and finally hit MMR . I have not posted in a while and have had lots of things happen health wise over the year from dx. Had to stop Gleevec due to sevear retinal bleeding at 6 months that required 8 PRP surgeries, but not before becoming legally blind. ( 1 of only 2 people this happened to, according my onc). Started Sprycel to replace Gleevec but ended up in the hospital 3 times in 5 weeks due to plural effusion from 100 mg sprycell. Have been on 50mg one day and 70mg the next for about 2 months and have finally hit MMR. Just thought I would share the good news with all of you. I read this forum all the time but have not had much to share until now.
