The Bone Marrow procedure is a first step. He should also do a molecular panel to determine if any other genes have mutated. It is common for several genes to mutate. The JAK2 mutation usually causes a high platelet count. I have the JAK2 mutation and the SRSF2 and SFB31 gene mutation. The molecular panel identified those two mutations. So my original diagnosis of Essential Thrombocytosis (ET) changed to MDS/MPN-RS-T after the molecular panel results came back. Good luck.

Thank you so much for your feedback. The oncologist is still doing blood work while treating her with iron infusions. He hasn’t prescribed any blood thinners for the high platelets. However, she is seeing a neurologist due to fluid on the brain and he prescribed them yesterday after he did an angiogram. She sees the oncologist today and will discuss further treatment plans
