six months ago i was diagnosed with et by local hematologist. his diagnosis and treatment seemed extreme so i got a second opinion. i was then diagnosed with pv, and my symptoms seemed more accurate with that. but after reading some blogs
i am concerned that the hematologist flatly refuses to administer a phlebotomy
even though my platelet count is high. my hematacrit is between 45 and 47.
i was getting daily headaches, but those have stopped since i started taking
l-arginine. however i have a very low ferritin ( iron) level and have fatigue daily.
i think i should be taking iron supplements and perhaps getting phlebotomies
any advice from other pv'ers? i am generally in good health other than pv
thanks to my diet. thanks and keep on keepin on :+)
