Hi so I was diagnosed with PV about 9 months ago. I've been having venesections only and aspirin, initially these were weekly then they have just started to move so they are now every 8-10 weeks. What we've seen is while the HC and platlets have stabilised at around 0.42 and 450-500 I've had a drop in others so I start to look a bit anaemic with HB 125 and MCV of around 70. I actually don't have any symptoms at all really of my PV and only very recently with the hot humid weather have been a bit breathless - but that could be down to the fact I've had a cough, cold and underlying hay-fever for most of last 8 weeks ! I guess that could also have effected my bloods.
Has anyone else had similar experiences. I don't want to take drugs if I can avoid it !
