My brother has recently been diagnosed with CML. He is 46 years old. The doctors want to prescribe Gleevec to treat this.
I know the only cure is a bone marrow transplant and I'm wondering why this has not been presented as an option to him.
1) When did you have the transplant and how are you feeling today
Needless to say, my brother is very concerned because doctors have given him an average of 7 years to live. We are wondering why they wouldn’t consider a transplant.
