My mum has been diagnosed with ET and has been taking hydroxyurea since March, with her dose increasing to 1000mg/1500mg on various days of the week.
She just had her check up and blood results show no difference in platelet count & the consultant recommended seeing a rheumatologist.
How long should it take for the medication to start stabilising her count?
I am worried this means the ET has progressed to something more serious. I am going with her to her next appointment so I can interrogate the consultant! It's so frustrating and scary not knowing the full picture.
Thanks in advance x
