I have been diagnosed CML since 2005. Couple of months ago I had conversation with my doctor about stopping medicine. I stopped taking medicine from Jan 2022. I did my first BCR-ABL test on Feb 27 and the numbers were 0.0050%. Second test was done on April 17 and the numbers were 0.0040%. The third test was done on July 1 and the numbers were 0%. I am very happy the way my body is reacting after quitting the medicine.
Now the problem is, I had a Gout attack on big toe of booth feet on April first week and other feet a coupe of weeks later. I took some medicine, and it was completely fine. Again, I am having the gout attack on 4th figure of my right hand.
I am planning to do another BCR-ABL very soon.
1. Are the Gout attacks general for CML patient after quitting medicine?
2. Should I start taking CML medicine with low dose again, to stop the Gout attack?
