I am a long term MPN patient, Myoproliferative Neoplasm Essential Thrombocytosis JAK 2 mutation positive. I have taken Hydrea and aspirin for 14 months and have gained about 20 kilos in that short time. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it a side effect of the Hydrea. I take 500mg each day and my counts since commencing the medication is around 600. I am also so very tired and in pain, is this normal?
I live in Australia abd the image was taken in Ireland.
