It's been a while since I posted but I have been reading a lot on here and find it so reassuring and comforting. I an 60, have PRV Jak2+ diagnosed 4 years ago and thought I was going to start Peginterferon in a couple of weeks (I had delayed starting last year as had holiday booked in caribbean for a friends wedding and obviously wasnt sure of side effects - then cancelled due to Covid!!). However , I've just had telephone consultation with my consultant who has informed me that Peg now has to be approved as I am 'over' 60 , so the chances are I will now have to go on Hydroxycarbamide. I had just got my head round starting Peg so this has come as a bit of a shock. Just looking for reassurance from any of you on Hydroxycarbamide . Thank you in advance , it really helps being part of this special group.
