Yes, I have been diagnosed with Thrombocytopenia and is associated these two diseases cancer and leukemia and why I see my oncologist every 3-6 months during flareups when my immune system is being heavily taxed.
Fortunately for me I was a collegiate swimmer and competitive cyclist, and my heart is super strong and developed a new “highway system” around the blockage.
We finally found a progesterone based birth control that I could tolerate to help balance my hormones. My issue was menstrual cycles that would last for 2 to 3 weeks when I had a tubal ligation procedure done when my health Took a severe downturn.
I was taken off the progesterone after my heart attack and my hormonal imbalance begin all over again sending me into periods of dysfunction.
Today I am on the lowest dose of blood pressure medicine possible just to protect my heart because I’ve never had high blood pressure or high cholesterol. My heart health regarding blood pressure and cholesterol has always been fantastic. I’ve never had high blood pressure or high cholesterol and my heart rate is always been in the high 40s low 50s. In fact my good cholesterol has always been very high and my bad cholesterol is always been very low. I am a conundrum.

don't know if this will help but here is my input: I have pancytopenia, also was a competition swimmer in high school. Cholesterol is always good, am on three medications for the heart but at age 82 I guess it can be expected. What is worrying me very, very immensely is the fact I am going blind from (I guess) the pancytopenia. Think that possibly a bone marrow graft may help the vision loss. Need help on this from somewhere. Where? TThe possibilty of blindness is terrifying. I have vision loss now. Am crying and praying.
