Merry X-mas LGBT Cancer Community new to this MPN group

Hello and Merry X-mas to all new to this site glad to know there is a LGBT communtity with Cancers. I have PV (Polycythemia Vera) much to learn about been dealing now for 3 years. Having a bone marrow biopsy on the 10th of January. Postponed for the holidays. So 😨 and so lost! Thank God for my significant Other. My wife is a blessing to me. So supportive but glad to be able to express my thoughts without driving her crazy. Merry X-mas again to all!! Much love and be safe family!!!

Merry Christmas to you too. You are at the right place for support and I know what you mean about driving the other half crazy with our worries etc. My hubby is a tolerant chap but, not having an MPN, doesn’t know what it feels like.

Good luck with the BMB. I had one in November and didn’t feel any pain at all during the procedure - I was more interested in chatting to the nurse about our dogs! The doctor had to sush us at one point as I was moving too much due to laughing!!

Enjoy the festivities. And don’t angst about the BMB. It’s okay. (Maybe not what you’d ask for from Santa but entirely manageable.) Take your SO with you. The support - both practical and emotional - is a boon and they sound like a marvel! Happy holidays.
