Hi every one, it has been a long time and a long journey.
I come to you to ask one stupid question which makes me wondering about labo mistery.
I have totaly changed my way of thinking about cml now, that's life and I take it day by day. I am not really worried anymore.
My previous pcr showed an increase from 0.007 to 0.016 with 118749 copies.
My last one on august showed a decrease from 0.016 to 0.006 but with exactly the same amount of abl copies, number I have found on an old pcr on july 2018 too.
I have asked my labo which doesn't answer and my to onc who told me that this is totally normal and there is nothing to think about.
But I wanted to ask the cml community so I would like to know if this last pcr is valiable according that the result and calculation has been done by the head of the labo, in Lyon which is a top 10 in Europe.
I am curious to know if some of you have such pcr caracteristics, it is quite annoying. My last pcr is maybe not "true" or the previous one.
I have seen some papers on the web that abl cand be constant if it is the same patient in the same laboratory, but nothing more and I am not an expert.
I hope I have been enough precise, I begin to think that as cml become such a "usual" cancer for my hemato center and according to my onc, they don't really care and by facility took the same abl level. Or maybe it was to see if there was a true increase, I don't know.
Thanks in advance for your answer and sorry for my frenglish ;).
