Hi MPN family,
I just want to ask is anyone on hydroxyurea that is around the 50 age mark ? Or do you defo not get put on it before 60. I know they are not keen before you are 60 due to other risks that come with it. Surely bringing my platelets down and reducing the risk of clot is better short term answer ?
My platelets today are still rising now 1222. Im having 2 day blinding headaches with flashing vision. Have been seen by ophthalmology and all is well there, apart from the start of cataracts. Will bringing my platelets down reduce the headaches ? My hematocrit is now normal too.
Best wishes lainy 🤗
