I have Polycythemia diagnosed for just over 3 years and now am well controlled on Ruxoilitinib 15mgs bd and warfarin ( due to DVT and PE prior to my MPN diagnosis).
I am awaiting an urgent right sided Hemi-colectomy with maybe chemotherapy follow up after my operation . The surgery is due to be done in the next couple of weeks . I am very positive because the bowel cancer was detected early via the bowel screening programme ( so please everyone always take part in all the various screening programmes you are offered - I had no symptoms so would have had no idea without the screening) .
My question is - has anyone had similar major surgery with PV or other MPN . The Colerectal Surgeon is liaising with my Haematologist re my PV but I just wondered if any one of our lovely forum members has any advice or tips if you have experienced a similar surgery .
Thank you and hope everyone is keeping well !
