I was doing well on Hydroxycarbamide after being on the treatment for 21 days. Then I developed a Blue and numb left index finger. I attended my GP Practice who tried to get me seen by the Haemotology department, They however said that I had to go to A&E. after being seen by 1) a Vascular Surgeon, 2) a General Surgeon, and finally 3) a Medical Consultant whilst being kept over night in the Assessment Unit. I was eventually Discharged to the care of the Haematology Department that my GP tried to refer me originally! My diagnosis being Hydroxycarbamide induced Vasculitis. My Hydroxycarbamide has been stopped but at this stage I have not been told what direction my treatment is to take. It has shook my confidence somewhat Anyone had similar experience?
