dadbags - Congratulations! Could I ask, did you reach PCRU at some point and (presumably then) stop taking Gleevec? And if so, did you remain undetectable for these past three years? I ask because I had given up any hope that I'll ever get to undetectable. I've had an excellent response since I began in 2009, but have been "frozen" at 0.006% IS for about 4 years. Hearing that you made it to TFR after many years NOT at undetectable would be heartening to me.
