I was diagnosed with P. Vera, I have the JAK2 mutation; this was the end of April 2017.
I am on Aspirin and hydroxyurea HU, plus diuretics for blood pressure and a statin.
My HGB started at 22 and with weekly phlebotomy and the 500 mg HU it had gone down steadily to 18 over 4 weeks. However, today at phlebotomy my HGB was up to 18.5.
Also, my WBC is up and it had been steady.
Is this common to see swings like this?
Thanks for reading this!
