High platelet count

Hi again,
To add to my post from 3/1 and address the concerns you posted today, there are 3 significant concerns for those with elevated platelets: blood clots, stroke and heart attack.
Like your son, I am being monitored and taking 1 81mg aspirin daily. This is a great place to be, all things considered. During the course of being monitored and my platelets begin to elevate to a significantly higher rate, then I'd need to begin taking Hydroxeurea, lower my count. Provided HU is effective, it will need to be continued forever, so not needing it is a wonderful thing.

Hi, my son also takes 81 mg aspirin and nothing else. I just hope his platelets don’t keep increasing from current 870,000. I agree not having to take Hu is a good thing. I have no idea what possible side affects it would have. I’m not sure at what level a person would have to take Hu? We’ll continue to wait and see. Good luck to you also.
