I am a 33 year old male, recently diagnosed Ph+ 1.5 weeks ago.
I started Dasatinib 100mg 9 days ago. After 4 days I noticed aches in my left rib cage/abdomen and it has persisted since then.
Is this common? Even though the doctor could not feel that my spleen is enlarged, is it more likely this discomfort could be from my spleen continuing to shrink?
I see my hematologist in a few days.
At initial consult 4 weeks ago, WBC was 325k, doctor mentioned my spleen was 5cm below my rib cage.
I was on hydroxy urea for 2 weeks and my WBC reduced to 17k.
At this point my doc could no longer feel my spleen and I had no discomfort.
