48 months after last FCR Treatment!

For almost four years I finished my 6th cycle of FCR. Afterwards my blood showed MRD neg.

my blood counts improved rapidly after treatment and all the years my counts were excellent. My condition and health feeling was great, sometimes better than before treatment. Doing much gym and walking in fresh air I am glad to nearly forgot the desease.

Although after 15 months MRD was 0,1% is kept stable ober the time. Last number in 2/2018 was 0,6%, but was told, that under 0,7, the messurement can never be exact!

Latest Leuco 7,8, Ery 5,3, HB 15,8, platelets 175.000, all othet in normal range.

Helper t cells, nk cells and b cells in normal range. IgG 660, IgA and IgM normal.

Scan showed no lymph knotes.

All in all, as an unmutated (cd38 -) and Trisomie 12 patient, I am more than happy about the outcome.

So Happy for you!!!! I had one treatment to FCR and had a reaction. I was so disappointed as the first treatment worked so well with decreasing all my lymph nodes and my numbers. I am now on imbrivica. I am also trisomy 12.. I wish for years and years of good health for you!
