The first week on Bosutinib was so bad that the doctor took me off for two days and then started me back on at 100 mg. and then had some heart flutters (which is weird) so she took me off and did a EKG and bloodwork and haven't heard a thing, my thoughts are that they can get worse but I think that any type of chemo med is going to affect everyone of us differently some harsher than others.
