Hey guys! I'm a 28 year old man with recently diagnosed PV. My counts are "borderline"178hb, 50 hct and 460 platelets. Starting vanesections and aspirin soon. My clonal copy of v617f - allele burden was 12% (jak2). And epo was low. I am really worried about the future and have spent so much time reading about PV online, statistics regarding survival etc. Some statistics are comforting, other scares me. As far as I've understood prognosis is good as long as we're monitored and treated. But it is the risk of progression that I'm worried about. I am still young and have much to live for. Should i still have goals? Chase my dreams? Forunately i don't have any real symptoms at the moment. I guess I'm not high risk. It feels weird to have such a rare disorder at this age. I have always been healthy, no other health problems. Just feeling anxious and worried right now. Im seeing my hermatologist next week, feel worried. Any toughts and shared experiences? Thanks!
