In November my BCR-ABL was 63%
By April it was down to 24%
I got my labs results today and it’s now back up to 57%
I’ve been on Sprycel.
My doctor wasn’t in today, but the nurse thinks he’ll want to send me to a Blood Cancer Institute. When I looked them up, they specialize in stem cell transplants. Isn’t that an aggressive next step? Shouldn’t I try a different TKI first?
Based on your collective experience, what would you all recommend as the next tki to try? We started with Sprycel because it has the lowest side effects.
p.s. My doctor is young and dare I say inexperienced.
