First of all, I wish you all a very happy new year and one that's as healthy as possible.
My year is not ending well! I have nasty cellulitis on my left leg, for which I'm on a course of pretty strong antibiotics. I've had cellulitis a number of times but not for quite a while until this latest episode. This infection is the latest in a string of infections over the past few months including 2 bouts of cystitis and a long lasting cough for which I had an X ray. (all was well).
I have PV and I'm on 1 tablet of Hydrea Monday to Friday. I've had no problems with the medication and am regularly monitored by a good haematologist. The problem is that my immune system seems to be really compromised. I get infection after infection. I'm writing to ask if anyone knows of anything that will boost the immune system. I talked to my GP about vitamin C yesterday, but she was wary of very high doses of any vitamin. The pharmacist thought that the 1000 gram soluble ones would be OK and I have some ready to use, but I'm wary. Any advice/ experience would be very welcome. Thank you.
PS Sorry for the moan. I know that I have very little to complain about compared with some others on this site.
