Hi I have just been diagnosed with pv after numerous blood tests over the last month . Still got too have a biopsy in 2 weeks to confirm but my heamo doc says that it looks like pv which is causing my high rbc count and says it’s making my blood too thick . I am very worried after looking on the internet as to what this is as it’s very scary and saying that it reduces your life expectancy a lot . This is the only site I see to get a honest review and makes me feel a bit better . I am 49yr old male with 3 children . Also worried regards a bone marrow biopsy after reviews on the internet . Please accept my apologies if I have already sent this as not sure if I am posting it in the correct place .
Thanks for reading Shaun
