So I went in for my three month check up at I was at 12%. I had my blood work done at 10 weeks and my appt. was at 11 weeks. The Dr. was pretty confident that the overage is just a timing issue, but I am on the 6 week check up schedule now. I am bummed I missed the 10% but it wasn't by much. I have been feeling better just really tired, no more fainting episodes. Those were probably related to my info below.
I wanted to share some general info below that I thought some of you might find interesting. I got a wrist watch style heart rate monitor that monitors resting heart rate in mid October for my birthday, so right before I started getting "sick". One of the things that prompted me to go in to the Dr. was that my friend pointed out that my resting HR was really high. I started Gleevec on Jan 14th and you can see the dramatic change in my resting HR. I never really paid attention to my HR but I sure am now.
