Is Gleevec suitable for me as a prophylactic?

I had a polyptetomy done for cancer in the sigmoid (large intestine). 

The polytectomy was sucessful and a followup CT scan showed no spread of the cancer i.e. liver, lungs etc were all clear.

A full blood scan showed perfect results.

Can I take Gleevec as a prophylactic ?

Would appreciate any advice.

TIA.

The best source of information would be your doctor as he/she is familiar with your case.

Just know there are no guarantees in life.
