Hello all, I am ET jak2+ diagnosed 2012 age 57, I have been on hydroxy for a year following angioplasty as a result of this disease. I take 1gm per day but my platelets are still rising, increased dose is not an option as I am anaemic. It has been decided that I will start on Anagrelide as well as hydroxy even though it is know to affect the heart. I have been told to report to haematology for a bmb in 2 weeks but have been given no further information. I would just like to know what to expect really, I’m not stressed about it although I always get infections when they stick needles in me so I am concerned about that! I’ve not been told to not take my Aspirin or to not drive or have a day off work or anything! It was just a quick phone call to give me the appointment!
Any info greatly appreciated, thanks
