I've been on Anagrelide for 2 weeks now (after 3 years on hydroxy) and have been to the hospital for a check up. My platelets were down from 415 to 305, best they've been since the beginning of last year.
However on comparing my results I've noticed my RBC is consistently low, usually around 3.50 this time 3.35. Other counts are all within "normal ranges" except for MCV and MCH which are consistently high always around 110 and 35-36. Is this "normal" with ET? I know they're not massively out of range.
My toes are still messy and the doctor said it may take some time for them to heal as the hydroxy will still be in my system for a while. It looks as though a toe on my other foot is going to start with the same problem too.
I don't go back for 6 weeks now, but have been told to contact them if there are any problems. I have had very mild palpitations which they warned me might happen, but nothing too scary.
