Have I Got Et

Hi fellow members

I have had numerous bl0od tests over the past 2 yrs as my platlet count has been between 600-972.

I went to see a haematologist last week and she told me it is very likely you have a condition called ET which is blood cancer! She doesnt know how or why ET starts and wasnt very subtle when delivering the news. Ive done a lot of research on the net and it appears as tho ET is technically blood cancer but isnt usually life threatening and 1 can expect the same life expectancy as a healthy person.

I'm going for a bone marrow biopsy later in the week so this should confirm what blood disorder i actually have. In the meantime, i am on low dose asparin.

It would be great to hear from anyone who can offer advice and recommend suitable medication.
