Just wondering if I can get some tips for my next visit to see my hematologist.
I've been having regular venusections almost one every 2 weeks for the past three months and my bloods have been going in the right direction.
On my last appointment my HCT level was 0.47 on the 28th Feb(almost time to celebrate) and I had another blood test at my doctors on the 14th March to measure the HCT level
Today I have had another Venusection but they advised me that my HCT was now 0.58 which was confirmed on the last blood test.
I'm not going to explain how I have been feeling recently as you all know what it's like but my real concern is that I still don't know if I have Primary or Secondary PV.
What do I need to do to prepare for my next hospital appointment?If my HCT levels are increasing even with regular Venusections,should I be looking for the next level of medication?
Can anyone advise please??
