My partner was diagnosed with CML 6 years ago (he is now 27). About a year ago he was put on Dasatinib (100mg) and had some bad side effects for a while but they subsided and was pretty much just fatigue that hung around.
Throughout the last few months though he has been getting really bad stomach cramps which have been so severe that he hasn't been able to work, along with this, he has also had severe diarrhea. This went away for a couple of weeks but is now back with vengeance.
My question is, is there anything that anyone can recommend to help with this? We've tried tablets from the pharmacy, wheat bags and changing diets but nothing has helped.
We saw his doctor on Monday and she gave him the option to change medication to Nilotinib and hope that that helps (but that will take a month or so to go through all the approvals, etc).
I'm desperate to try and find something that can help, I hate seeing him in pain!
Thanks so much!
