Does anyone have or had Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors?
I did. I did not have Gleevac after surgery to remove the tumour.

Had a 10 pounder removed in '05. By the middle of '06 my abdomen was full of tumors again. My new oncologist put me on Gleevec. Within one month I could feel the tumors shrinking. I've been on Gleevec for 5 months now. Very few if any side effects. I go in next week for first CT since starting chemo. As far as drugs for cancer goes, this seems to be one of the easiest to get through.
