This is my first time posting to the board - so happy to have found it!
My husband was diagnosed with CML this past March and has been on 400mg Gleevec since April. He had a 1.6 log reduction at 3 mos and we are currently waiting for the 6 mo result. We noticed however that his platelets seem to be slowly increasing and just wondered if this is something we should be worried about.
At diagnosis, his platelets were 395 and they came down to 299 by the end of May. They have been steadily rising each month since and are currently at 366. The bloodwork report says the normal range is 150 - 400 x 10 9/L so we are still normal but just wondering what happens if they keep rising.
Thank you for any info...
