Will Jason Blake's play be affected by cancer?
Tue, October 9, 2007

Maple Leafs forward Jason Blake was diagnosed with a type of blood cancer known as chronic myelogenous leukemia on Friday.

"The prognosis, and certainly the expectations of my physician, myself and my family, is that I will live a long, full and normal life," Blake said yesterday.

Blake has been told that the condition has been discovered early enough to allow him to continue playing hockey.

With Blake playing through the disease, do you think it will have an affect on his play? Should his ice time be limited? Have your say in our forum.

It said there COULD be side effects!

In order to treat the ailment, Blake, 34, will take a pill called Gleevec every day. According to Dr. Brian Goldman, an emergency physician at Mount Sinai Hospital and a CBC medical columnist, the medication could have side effects.

So jimmy, which paper said there are no side effects?

This looks like a lot of side effects?
wayne, 2007-10-10 08:22:09

If someone were to suffer side effects them they were the most common ones.

"The most frequently reported ones are swelling, nausea and vomiting, muscle cramps, muscular pain, diarrhoea and rashes," Dr. Goldman said. "Swelling can be around the face, lower limbs and can be treated with water pills. There also have been reports of fluid on the lungs, heart failure and kidney failure.

Could have side effects, doesnt mean everyone does.

Doc its the sports injury report. Its not a sick list of everyone. It effects a game that people pay to watch. Its not out to garner sympathy. Maybe for the leafs.

"Assuming his blood counts are normal, his spleen isn't enlarged and that the side effects are manageable, there is a good chance he can continue playing. But keep in mind I do not know the specifics of the situation."

This was in the Toronto Sun. Which paper did you see no side effects in Jimmy?
wayne, 2007-10-09 20:52:38

Not according to an article in the paper today. The article said there isnt any side effects from the pill Blake will have to take every day. The type of cancer he has is highly treatable with a 85 - 90 % success rate.

I am sure the Leafs will give him time off here and there but for the most part he should be able to play the better part of the season.
