Hi,I'm 23 and I was diagnosed with APL in Sept 04. I had three rounds of chemo. and am now on Atra for 1 wk on and 1 wk off for one year. I am doing pretty well. I wondered what symptoms other patients have had from Atra? I know I have severe headaches, but my dose got cut in half, and now it seems okay. Although I have this constant pulsing in my ear and it's sooo frustrating. I wondered if anyone else had a noise in their ear from the ATra? I'm also curious to hear from anyone who has had APL, since I am worried all the time that it will come back. Does anyone know the rough percentage of a chance of a relapse? I've heard so many numbers...
