Help me understand
I was diagnosed with CML and given Gleevec 400 ml. After taking gleevec for 2 weeks doctor took additional blood test. My WBC dropped from 36.5 to 7.1 and all other blood counts came down to normal range. I'm wondering if gleevec could give such fast hematological response or I was possibly misdiagnosed originally. I don't and didn't have any symptoms, my spleen and liver weren't enlarged, no enlarged lymph. Should I get second opinion asap? Please, help me.

hi,  i hope you don't mind me asking you a couple of questions.  how did they find out you had cml?  my counts have been good but i have low grade fevers, joint pain and sweats.  they don't think it's any type of leukemia but i am afraid because i lost a sister to acute leukemia many years.  i hope you are feeling well. eat blueberries and mushrooms

Bone marrow biopsy confirmed CML. I have no symptoms and would feel good if not emotional stress that I'm going through.
