I saw my haematologist this afternoon to get the results of my genetic testing and bone marrow tests. The good news is that I do not have any of the mutations or genetic markers. However, my bone marrow did indicate an increased number of megakaryocytes (elevated platelet count has been my ongoing issue). So, he told me he thinks it is an MPN - just early days. So for now, we're in a watch and wait pattern with follow ups and new blood work every six months to keep an eye on the platelet count.
I had been taking aspirin the last few weeks as I was travelling via long haul flight. However, since I'm not travelling now, I bruise easily, and my platelet count isn't that high (around 500), he said I should stop taking it for now. So, at the moment, I don't need any treatment and watching and waiting, unless/until there is a change.
So, that was very good news. Still sounds like it's ET, but nothing to be worried about at all for the time being.
