Hello all, I want to share my good news with you. You may remember my post of 4weeks ago when I was worried about rising platelets and the possibility that hydroxy had stopped working. The good news is that after a second increase in dose 4 weeks ago, I went for my follow up appointment yesterday and this time it had gone down to 502! My haem was pleased (not as pleased as me!) but does want it a bit lower given my heart condition, but it's going in the right direction at last. It's such a relief as from what he told me, the other drug options can affect the heart if you have heart problems, so I have been very worried.
I am off to the hospital shortly for the third time this week, for injections into the joints on the top of my foot and ankle joint. Fingers crossed they take the pain away, sometimes they do, sometimes they don't. Thank goodness for the NHS, what would we do without it!
Best wishes to you all, keep smiling.
