I want to thank everyone who commented on my posts the past few weeks. I got so much good advice and support. I wanted to let everyone know that I am feeling so much better. As a matter of fact I didn't even realize how bad I was feeling until the past couple of days of feeling good. The problems seem to have been caused my a blood pressure medication that I have been on for over two years. So I am not sure why it suddenly started depleting my potassium and sodium. But I can tell you that after being off that medication I am doing great. I haven't felt this good in a long time. Also I am not having stomach issues and feeling nauseous and sick all the time. It seems I have more energy as well. I find this to be amazing as all along I have been blaming everything on the Gleevec when it may not have anything to do with the problems that I have been having.
I guess only time will tell.
The other good news I want to share is my lab test results for the PCR is now at 0.007 down from 0.023 last month. I feel I am getting so close to a complete response along with feeling better I am so grateful for that. It has been 27 months since starting with the Gleevec and I take 400 and 500 mg every other day.
I just wanted to let you know the cause in case anyone was having the same difficulty and side effects as me.
I am looking forward to celebrating my birthday on Tuesday and just happy to be well.
