I'm 44, JAK negative with ET and currently only on a low dose aspirin regimen. I saw my hematologist yesterday and my platelets have gone from 959 to 989 in the last couple of months. I see many of you have much lower platelet counts and are taking other medications. My doctor assures me that I'm low risk and that the increase doesn't constitute a change in treatment. I guess I'm wondering if some of you are in a similar situation. I'm grateful to be considered low risk, but if my counts keep rising... I just wonder how high is too high.
