I was diagnosed in August 2012. My WBC was 240,000. I started on Gleevac for the first year and switched to 100mg Sprycel due to some minor side effects.
I have historically been a "slow and steady" responder as it took me about 14 months to reach CCyR and a little over 2 years to reach MMR.
Happy to say I've gotten my latest results and have now maintained PCRU for 7 months. This time around I was sure to get the draw done early in the week and had the lab ensure the sample was picked up on the same day.
7/13 - 1.062% - Switch to Sprycel
10/13 - 0.9272% - CCyR FISH
11/13 - 0.608% - switched to 6 month testing cycle by Oncologist
3/14 - 0.394%
9/14 - 0.208% - started taking meds in morning (I take a PPI at night for reflux)
4/15 - 0.000% - PCRU
11/15 - 0.000% - PCRU
Just thought I would post in case there are others out there with similar experience.
