Hello to everyone. Just a question for you. My husband has PV and is currently taking hydroxycarbomide 2 every other day. After struggling with anaemia for the last year after a major stomach bleed his red counts are coming back to a normal range, he was bone marrow tested and his consultant thought he was turning MF but Addenbrookes hospital did not agree so his condition is still PV. The thing is his neutrophil count is still very high, his overall white blood count is 30 and his consultant is gradually increasing the hydroxyl but it is a fine balance because of the red count. His platelet count is normal. He is looking and feeling much better than six months ago but his white count is what is bothering me and his consultant does not say much other than to increase his meds slightly. We go back 23 July to see if they have lowered but over the last three months they have only lowered from 35 to 30. As far as I know the neutrophils are the infection fighting ones and he has no infection that they know off so it is very strange. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks
