Anyone Else Use The VA For Treatment?

Anyone Else Use The VA For Treatment?

The VA hosp has run out of Gleevec,.... so my Dr didn't refill my rx! He said it won't effect my long term prognosis! Has anyone else missed a week or so of pills?

I have cml. Had to go off of gleevac for 6 months due to side effects. Oncologist said it would be fine. Guess if your numbers are ok. I get occasional vacations from my meds when I go crazy,lol. I am now on sprycell.

Wow! I was so totally freaked out over one day. I swear I have become so anxious and paranoid over anything health related now. I hate being this way.
Since the odds are so slim of having CML, I envision that anything else is possible to happen.

I have been off of any type of chemo drug for the last 6 1/2 months because of one reason or another and am doing okay but will start back on a chemo drug real soon. And sometimes they will take you off a medication if there is some severe reactions or if you are not fairing well on the medication.
