Thumbs up Cml,4 Months Later

Hi Every One. I Am A 61 Year Old Female. I Was Dx In Oct, 2007 With Cml. My Gynocologist Found My Upper Abdomen Was (full) So She Sent Me For An Ultra Sound, Then My Primary Sent Me For Blood Work. My Spleen Was Huge, My Wbc Was 300,000, So I Went Into The Hospital, And Was Told Of Diagnosis. Im Doing Very Well On Gleevec. I Went From 600mg To 400 And Now Im On 300..almost Zero Cancer After Pcr Test.and All Other Blood Work Is Normal! What A Blessing Gleevec Is For Me. Just Wanted To Share This. My Onc Suggested A Bmt, But I Really Want To Stay On Gleevec, Any Thoughts On The Gleevec Vs. Bmt? Love, Marlane
