Hi Anonymous and thanks for your questions.
The majority of CML patients who are diagnosed in the chronic phase are expected to live a normal lifespan if they take their medication as directed and are monitored on a regular basis.

Do you have CML? I've lived with CML since 2009 and am doing well. It's always difficult to learn that you have cancer, but it does get easier with time. CML is very treatable and manageable today. I wish the best for you.
