Hello, well not good news for me. And I know everything will be fine but when an tire iron is thrown in it throws me for a loop every time. My last Fish numbers were higher. My Onc has been considering changing me to Tasigna for a couple apts now. I wasn't crazy about the idea even though I imagine it will get me to 2nd remission faster its almost been a year and I'm not there yet close but I've been not doing much slowing down lately. I have just started to feel better, less fatigue, less achy, rash well that comes and goes less itcy. Thinking I was starting to get to a place I was feeling better then now have to try a new drug. I'm just worried about the side effects, especially the headaches.I'm prone to headaches, and migraines sometimes anyway so I don't need a drug to help me get them. I know I may not get any right? LOL
My question is does changing the drug from Gleevec to Tasigna does the fatique come back like in the beginning when you start gleevec? God I hope not.
My doctor is going to start working with my insurance to try to get them to want to pay double now! That worries me too.I need my job to pay for my treatment and I do feel sorry for employers having people like us ! Then he'll have me come in and discuss it and I'm sure the Ekg thing and all. I'm dreading it as you can tell. Even though my common sense tells me I'll get to the goal faster. Just don't want to feel like crap again! Okay I'm done complaining.
Just curious if the fatique is going to start all over and as bad as with Gleevec in the beginning?
