How low has your WBC count been since on the hydrea medicine. I have E.T. I'm know that taking the Hydrea medicine our counts RBC & RBC will not bee in normal range & often low. Looking back the lowest my wbc count has been 2.8. Today I just received a call from the GP. nurse to inform me that they are low. My next Hemo Dr. app't is in 4 weeks. Monday, I am going to ask to see him earlier.
I wish I didn't receive that phone call, and then keep me concerned over the weekend.. Tired, fatigued, yes, all the time even when my WBC counts were higher.
If anyone has experienced lower than 2.8 WBC count, and did your Hemo Dr. prescribe something?
Even though we all eat very healthy, all the over the counter products for iron will not help.
I once confronted my Dr. a long time ago, about what if, the WBC counts became to low, his reply was it will be addressed at that time. I presently do not know what my platelet count is. Monday I will go to the GP dr. office to pick up my cbc diff report that was done last week.
Maybe I am just jumping the gun, but still I could have done without that phone call. My GP practioner is very familiar with Essential Thrombocythemia and the medicine, so he is up on that knowledge.
Thanks for listening to me.
Have a nice day.,....
