Hi All, I am turning 60 in a few months, I have ET and have only been on aspirin for the last 5 years. I am naturally concerned as to what is going to happen when I am 60. I have no symptons and am worried that if I start medication I am not going to feel as well as I do atm as I have a very busy life with a lot of committments. I am wondering if anyone else has decided against going on medication and if so what reaction the Drs have had. I understand that the risk of stroke increases after the age of 60, but I have no other risk factors. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you .
