New to Pegasys for ET - advice please!
Hello, I am a 67 year old woman who was diagnosed with ET 30 years ago through a bone marrow biopsy. I have had no symptoms and no clotting events and have only been on 81 aspirin. My platelets were 900 at diagnosis at have stabilized in the 500s. Recently I visited a hematologist and found I have Jack2. He prescribed HU 500 mg daily. I panicked when I read it is a chemotherapy and sought a second opinion at the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. There the doctor I saw suggested Pegasus, given my fear of starting HU for life. I am waiting to receive it. Any suggestions, especially for using one vial for 4 weeks given the high co-pay?
