Hello, just curious if anybody knows the fastest CMR on record. I've been on Tasigna for about 4 months and on the blood test last month I was told I was in MMR.
Is it that for most people, from MMR to CMR it takes longer than from CyR to MMR?
I'm just wondering if I might be hanging on to MMR for a while before I even see (hopefully) a CMR.
Background : 30 yr old male, athletic and healthy (other than CML), I was diagnosed with 209,000 WBC, 2.5% blasts in the middle of October 2010 with random shortness of breath / lightheaded/headachy feeling. Right now i'm just dealing with the side effects of Tasigna (dry skin - can cut easily, occasional random headache spurts, lately some sort of heartburn type of feeling, and of course itchy scalp).
I'm hoping it continues to go down, because one day I hope to stop taking pills (im sure we all do).
