I achieved CCyR in November and my biopsy from Mar showed I'm back up to 5%. My PCR "allegedly" decreased though from 1.87 to 1.14. Since trends are what confirm accuracy of PCRs, who knows if I just had a straggler PH+ cell in the FISH or if I had a faulty PCR or if in Nov, they just happened to grab against the odds 20 cells that weren't PH+ back in November.
Who knows...I'm not horribly upset...just bummed that I'm not an "overachiever" on this journey. I asked Dr Cortes about going back up from 70mg Sprycel to 100mg, but he doesn't think my counts are high enough to try it again since I was so low on 100mg last time and am still pretty low on 70mg....he also is ok to sit tight and see what the next biopsy in June shows, too and doesn't think this is cause to sound the alarms.
Just wanted to fill you in on my journey and welcome any input, even though I'm not too active over here.
