Hubby, 67 diagnosed MF out of the blue 2 month ago is on "watch and wait" taking 75mg of Asprin. He gets headaches (May not be related but asked doctor) who said his most recent platelet count is 701x109/L 8/4/14 compared to 563x109/L 6/2/14 a month back. Dr said if this persists then it would sway him towards a trial of treatment and suggests we talk about hydroxycarbamide when we visit in two weeks....can anyone help with blood count translation. ? Some sites infer this is still relatively low... Hubby doesn't want to take drugs for the sake if it.... Thank you people....
