I was dx in 11/10 and began my treatment with an onc recommended by my gp. He seemed compassionate and knowledgeable. In January, he sent me to consult with a bmt clinic for "a long term treatment plan". That meeting was very informative and that is when I learned that I need a PCR every 90 days. When I went for my labs on day 77 and learned that I was not scheduled for a PCR at my next lab appt on day 91, I asked the nurse to query the onc. She said he agreed I should have the PCR when I came for labs on day 91. Well, when I showed up for my labs on day 91, they were not ordered. I was scheduled to meet with the onc that day and when I questioned him about it, he said he needed to consult with the bmt clinic because there are different variations of the PCR test and he needed to know which one I should have. I had the PCR on day 105. When I spoke with him 10 days later, he said he had the results on his desk but needed to consult with his colleagues to interpret the results because "he did not know the parameters". I am losing confidence in his expertise in dealing with CML and wonder if the PCR test would have occurred if I had not pushed for it. I am inclined to look for a new onc with more CML expertise and would appreciate hearing from those of you with more experience with this to make sure I am not overreacting. Thanks in advance for your help.
