Have greatly valued this site since diagnosis in June 2018. I started treatment - 400 mg Imatinib - on July 5, 2018. Except for a two week period in August, 2018, where I had to stop taking the drug because of low neutrophils, platelets, etc., I have been on the TKI daily. I just got the results from my September 9th draw and my BCR-ABL1 is undetectable.
I want to share this news with the group and hope that it will provide hope for those who are in the early stages of dealing with this terrorist in our bodies.
I am also undergoing proton beam treatment for prostate cancer, and I pray that the results will be similar. I have had 8 treatments and have 20 to go. So far, so good.
Best wishes to all on this site, no matter where you are in your journey!
