I was diagnosed with Polycythemia about 6 weeks ago after routine blood tests to explain my leg pains,fuzzy heads,frequent toilet visits,tingling of leg feet and finger tips. After my tests for Jak2 gene came back negative my Dr ordered X-rays and CT scan and they found a large growth in my pelvic area. I had a total abdominal hysterectomy 2 weeks ago and am recovering from the operation with no pain from the abdomen but am feeling so miserable because of the pains in my legs. I walk like an old lady ( I'm 58) and my legs ache and tingle. Both my Gynaecologist and my Hematologist thought that once the growth was removed I would no have Polycythemia. I don't see my Doctors for another week but I am feeling miserable with the leg pains mainly because I just want to feel well again. I was so positive that all these symptons would disappear once I had had my surgery.Has anyone had a similar experience??
