I've been lurking here for a few months since I was diagnosed April of this year and I just turned 40 in May... Here is my current situation.
Within 2 weeks of being on Dasatinib 100mg my WBC went from 55k (at diagnosis) to 14k
At 4 weeks on treatment my CBC was nearly normal and my Differential was normal
At 6 weeks (last week) my CBC was very close to normal just indicating that i was very mildy anemic but very close to normal levels, Dr. was not worried. My differential was normal. AT this point they did another qPCR to check BCR-ABL.
My result came back today and at 6 weeks (last week) my qPCR test showed: IS M-BCR-ABL1 - 22.017%
My initial qPCR result from blood taken 4/12 was 21.829%
I started the Dasatinib 100mg on 4/28.
I'm very worried because my BCR-ABL IS has actually gone up slightly. I have emails out to both my Drs but wanted to see what everyone here had to say as there seem to be some very knowledgeable people on this forum!
Thanks so much for your help...
