CML On Tasinga

CML On Tasinga

Hi Does anyone one have extreme muscle soreness while taking Tasinga. I have CML and I am on Tasinga been on it since Dec 14 2018... However my Biceps and Shoulders hurt me on a daily bases. I am afraid I am going to loose strength in my arms if I am not careful.

When first diagnosed with CML Tasigna was the first medication I was put on but the pain was unbearable my oncologist quickly took me off it and at this point I have tried just about all of them Tasigna, Sprycel and Gleevec. I am currently on Bosulif although I am still in pain the level of pain is minimal and it has had the least side effects. My numbers are getting better and I am feeling the results.
I found hope in the words from my oncologist...
"you will die with this disease not from it"
Talk to your oncologist about your options they are out there you just have to explore them. You are in my prayers.
