Husband came out of hospital being told had patellar tendonitis and no information re the hot flushes/sweats. Asked our GP to run hormone test and it shows very low testosterone. He said his counts all over the place so I was upset and rang his consultant who says the leg pain is being caused probably by fibrosis and he is going back into hospital tomorrow for tests. Five weeks ago his haematocrit was so high they did a venesection and increased the hydroxycarbomide and now they think he has changed to MF and that is what is causing the sweats even though his testosterone is very low. Can MF develop that quickly when only a short while ago his red count was very high. His platelet count is very low but he had been put on NSAIDS which they have now taken him off. Very worried and working myself up on the internet. Very confused as well as his hormone levels are so low as well. The sweats are at night but also during the day even in a cold room they just appear. Thank you to all. x
