dear scuba, many thanks for posting about your cessation experience..sharing our opinions and experiences
will go a long way in all of us achieving our long term objectives in this serious fight.
i am also happy to inform that dr cortes is a very kind man and is gracious and magnanimous enough to correspond and advice a distant patient like me on e-mail..may his tribe increase!!!
i am a CML patient since 2003 from india .i am in MR 4 presently on international scale..i am keen to share my own personal experiences of my 13 year long CML fight.
i was on 800 mg glivec for long time being a slow responder..am presently on deescalated 400 mg dose since past one year..i am also keen to attempt a TFR but have never been PCRU consistently..i am considering adding low dose
interferon for 12 months.
best wishes to all you fellow fighters..we will prevail in the end and win..we need to have faith in modern science and research and it is just a matter of time before a true cure is discovered.
