I have been diagnosed with PV. I was chatting with a friend and his neighbor also has Polycythemia Vera. What we both have in common is hip replacements. Before my hip replacement all of my blood tests were well within range. 4 years later I have PV. Wondering if any others have had hip replacements, or had to yuse blood thinners after and operation, or have foreign metallic objects in their bodies.
