Hi everyone my name is Jake and I'm 21 years old. Over the past two years my GPA has mentioned on passing that my RBC is slightly higher then normal and my HGB is borderline normal for the past two years these are the results
2016 RBC- 6.12 (norm 4.20-5.50)
2017 RBC - 6.04( norm 4.20-5.50)
and my Hemoglobin was 17.2 last year and 17.3 this year (high avg is listed as 17.0)
My platelet was 330 last year and 324 this year well within the average of my doctor list.
My GP gave me multiple options and said he will test me for JAX next physical in a year . I have none of the symptoms and have a full exciting energetic life to this point but when I got home and Google search polycythmia I've been a total nervous wreck and stressed to the max after mainly reading about how it's called cancer (my mom had ovarian cancer) and it terrifies me ill be as miserable and In pain like she was and I don't want that to happen. Also the life expectancy scared me. I'm only 21 and want to live more then 15-20 years .
