Well that was an interesting morning! Went to my appointment knowing I'd probably need to start treatment as my platelets have been climbing for a while - had decided to opt for HU and negotiate a delay of a couple of weeks as I've got a very busy October. Ended up opting for Pegasys instead and injecting my first dose there and then in the clinic..! So far so good with no side effects noticeable - back in 2 weeks to see if it's started having any effect on my platelet count of 1100+. After 13 years of aspirin only it all seems a bit odd but I guess I'll get used to it and if a once a week injection does the trick I'll be happy..!
