My oncologist called this evening wanting to know if my new meds had come in.  They had not.  He told me that my BCR-Abl numbers had greatly improved which is very surprising being that I’ve been off my Sprycel for nearly two months.  Too bad my body can’t handle the medicine any longer.  Once my new meds get here, which should be within a few days, I’ll start taking it.  The side effects looks pretty bad, diarrhea, fluid retention in both the heart and lungs, low red blood counts, liver problems and multiple other issues.  Bosulif will be the third medication that I will be on.  There are only a couple more that is out there that is approved by the FDA.  I’m hoping this works with minimal side effects402d22500b1841198233ebb8058faf26-bosulif_200_312
