Hi all, im interested to hear from other PV ladies and gents about the frequency of venesections. In particular those who are only on aspirin currently. Mine is around 8 weeks but my symptoms worsen for about a week leading up to a venesection. Then they take just over a pint. My hospital standard for a vensection is a count of 45 but i feel at my best at about 42/43. I wonder if anyone takes a different approach i.e. smaller venesections more often?
