Hello everyone, wanted to post an update.
I am doing okay, the 6 HU pills per day (3000mg) have done the trick and my platelet count is down to 650,000, which is great for me.
But, now I am having an issue with my heart. I may have had a mild cardiac episode and my heart lining could be damaged. I am going to the cardiologist on Monday. I will post an update. Anyone else have any heart issues while on Hydrea?
I turned 40 this year. This year will be 6 years that I've been living with E.T. Going to the hematologist every three months to check my platelet count.
On a personal note, our oldest started college this year. Time goes by so quickly.
I hope this post finds everyone doing okay.
