Ray, have you ruled out mounting side effects from any of your prescriptions? I had been on Sprycel (dasatinib) for 10 months and it served its purpose very well in putting my "Philadelphia chromosome" into remission. But, at about 6 months my blood pressure started creeping up and I got to the point of only being able to walk about four blocks before being out of breath. I was getting fluid around my heart. I had four echocardiograms, two chest x-rays, two EKGs while monitoring my situation. We have discontinued the Sprycel and almost immediately my health improved. I suggest this as an example of what some of these side effects might do.
age 70, dx RAEB-2 on 11-26-2013 w/11% blasts. 8 cycles Vidaza 3w/Revlimid. SCT 8/15/2014, relapsed@Day+210 (AML). Now(SCT-Day+1005). Prepping w/ 10 days Dacogen for DLI on 6/9/2017.
