Just a quick update.
I wrote a post last week about 'stomach protection' when taking aspirin. Well, went back to my GP on Monday (unrelated to my MPN) and I did ask for her opinion about taking a stomach protector, as she had raised this issue last week. I also mentioned that I didn't want to take another drug unnecessarily. I don't think she could give any concrete answer - other than evidence points to it being more of a problem with age (70s). We came to the joint conclusion that if I begin to have any signs such as indigestion then it would be advisable.
In regards to my ET, she has changed my prescription to dispersible aspirin, as in her opinion this is the most effective?
