I get my results via email now and I emailed Mark, my consultant, on Monday, quite trepidatiously. He wrote, on Tuesday, with some rather brilliant news.

Undetectable. For the first time in 9.5 years.

No evidence of a BCR-ABL1 gene fusion by RQ-PCR at a sensitivity of 0.00001, consistent with molecularly undetectable CML.

Just to give people some reassurance of how much our numbers can bounce around, take a look at mine since 2012. I’ve no doubt it’ll register next time but for anyone mid-blip, take heart from this.

Thanks to everyone for their support; thanks to dasatinib!

In the meantime, yay.
