I admit that the first six months on Bosulif were rough, so rough I wasn't sure whether or not I would be able to tolerate the medication. Through trial and error, Zofran and CBD oil, I found that taking 200 mg of Bosulif, twice a day, with food, works for me.
I started to see a slow decrease in my PCR and today, one year later, my PCR is .037%!!!! Say what??? I just cannot believe it! I saw my oncologist just a little over a week ago, and we both agreed that I would probably always hover just below .1% and that that was "OK".
During the past eight years, I had high hopes of reaching an undetectable state, but somewhere along the line, I accepted that it was just not in the cards for me. HOWEVER, today's results, who knows!!
I find it quite interesting, that after eight years of testing my blood every three months, I am still like a kid at Christmas, anticipating what might be in the box.
Today's gift has me smiling from ear to ear, doing the happy dance, all over the house!
Happy 8 Year Cancerversary to me!
Thank you, God, and Thank you to all who love and support me unconditionally. For those of you in my shoes, I pray for great results for you, too!
