Can some of you share for those of us who have been diagnosed in the last 6-7 months what "goal marks" we should be shooting for. Is bone marrow biopsy for most of you done at diagnosis and then again at 6 months or 1 year. Also, what numbers are the most important markers to know from blood work? My doctor hasn't really shared my results other than to tell me I am either OK or on one occasion that I needed an infusion of red cells. Unfortunately my husband had a major heart attack right before my diagnosis and alot of my focus has been on him; much less on what I should know about important CML goals and numbers. I am in a hematologic remission but what do you think are the most important questions to be asking of the doctors? Many thanks to all of you who take the time to respond.
