      I haven't experienced that, but I've heard it can happen. Maybe seek a second opinion to explore all available options

      I havent been in that situation. Are you seeing a CML specialist or just a hematologist oncologist? If you aren't seeing a specialist maybe its time to seek one out. They are more familiar with current events and treatments better than hem/oncs.

          @teacher4156 oh wow. Do you have mutations or not responding? I had been told that failing 3 medications would be an indicator for BMT. Just remember you always have a choice in your treatment. Don't let them force you into something you don't want or feel comfortable with.
