After nearly 14 years with ET I have had my first venesection today as my PCV and HB were classed too high, platelets at 433.Reading past posts it seems this procedure is more common with PV. Has anyone else with ET had experience of venesections? I am worried that my platelet count may increase, after all my body will replenish what has been taken,and if my bone marrow is over active anyway will it it go into overdrive ? Or am I worrying needlessly?
