Today I went to see my Hematologist he said I have mpn Polycythemia.
I had bloods taken shows my bloods are evaluating and everything else. My ct scan shows my spleen is fine and everything else is ok. He wants me to take Asprin. He wants me to decide treatment either Hydroxyurea or peg interferon treatment. Can someone please tell me which one is better option?. I am not sure which one is better option. He gave me a leaflet about each drug. Woman 42 yrs. he wants to check for fibrosis so I got booking for bone marrow soon. Once he has the results from bm he will have an idea on what steps to take next. I start peg interferon next Friday. I see him next in 5 weeks.
Any help will be useful.
I forgot to ask which mutations I have. Maybe I will ask the nurse next week when I get interferon
My last bloods was in 2016 was clear. Last April I fainted didn’t go to the doctors. So I have feeling it started around that time my symptoms.
