Though it's been a few weeks since I posted on here I've been reading all your posts and found discussions about and answers to many of my own concerns, so thank you everyone.
After feeling quite unwell for several months I went to the GP and the rest is history as they say.
Had my first check up after being diagnosed with ET two months ago and the Hydroxycarbamide is working! Platelets are on the way down so it's keep taking the treatment and back in 8 weeks for clinic.
I was so worried about the meds that I almost didn't take it but after some wise advice on here I am glad I did.
Hoping to meet some of you in Manchester on 30th.
Very best wishes to everyone x
