Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
More of a problem with diarrhea than vomiting, but feel nauseous fairly regularly
From this study (6 months ago):
I was just wondering if taking gleevec for 3 years would cause hearing loss (ringing in the ear)
From this study (6 months ago):
I was prescribed Imatinib for 3 years after GIST was removed, to try prevent recurrence, Over 2 years into course, developed severe cough and cold which have persisted, more or less, to this day. Was hospitalised early this year to get rid of gunge in my lungs and afterwards (March) had a bronchoscopy. Within hours my right ear had blocked and so it has remained. 3 weeks ago had grommet fitted but that hasn't worked - it became 'crusted over' and the crust has apparently been removed but it will almost certainly (in my view) happen again - because I still have this horrible gunge in my nose and it sets like concrete, which is presumably what happened in my ear.
