"these finding are most in keeping with the stated Essential Thrombocythaemia (WHO ICD 9962/3).Reticulin staining is not increased Grade MF-0.Normal erythropoiesis and minor increase in pleomohic megalaryopoiesis."

Hi Lilly,

I have ET too.

I have read that having the Jak2 mutation for ET can present with overlapping features of PV. My haematocrit at diagnosis was 47.9, yet I was still given a diagnosis of ET albeit, without a BMB. I was put on hydrea which brought my platelet and haematocrit levels down, so win win all round for me.

It sounds like you’re in excellent hands, and such an inspiration to us all having had ET for 26 years.

Hello Lilly 1958, good to read your post . I was diagnosed with pv/et four years ago and have been on hydroxyurea since then which has brought the ppl at let’s down . Still have multiple problems though . I did have a bmb and have jak2. I am in central Victoria , but go to peter Mac hospital . Bye for now

Hallo Betbet, long time I read and I think dr. Harrison said we are can't,have both , only can Et transver to PV , BMB selected Et or PV , blood test Jak2 , I had 3 times in 10years blood test and was always pozitiv, I thinking if I have ET (by BMB ) whay venosection , I think I have both . Diagnosis of ET now and venosection , I think only PV have venosection . Our MPN is really different person to person , Maz said same . Now I only must waitin for next resolt of blood test , and Hct , I houp venosection stopped . Thanks for replying . Lilly !

I am on the same road. I believe in alkaloide diet too.
