Thanks so much for all the great posts and content. You helped me so much with my anxiety at the beginning.
My story began in December 2019, on a routine blood check (like most of you guys). I started with Imatinib (generic) in January 2020 and since then everything was more than ok.
BCR-ABL 6 months - 0.032
BCR-ABL 12 months - 0.00049
But suddenly, my PCR rise on my 18-month check - 0.0015
I did nothing different from before. The only things are: I gained a little weight (4-5 kg), got the Sinopharm covid vaccine, and maybe had a little less physical activity. And that's it.
My doctor is fine with the results. She's planning new PCR control for 6 months (this is common where I live). That's it. Although, I didn't get the impression from her that she saw a lot of times this kind of log-reduce.
I'm feeling pretty down last 5 days since I got the results. I've read the entire internet and I see these things happen. But the thing I'm most concerned about is - I'm still in a "critical" two years period where mutations and drug resilience happen more often and here we only have one medicine more (tasigna).
Seems like I feel even worse now than at the beginning, back then I had a strong faith in drugs & medicine, but now it's like I'm losing it.
P.S. Almost forgot to add, I'm taking vitamin D supplements daily (2000 UI).
