Spleen involvement in ET
Hello, I am wondering what the symptoms are of beginning spleen involvement in ET.
I was dx'd with ET in 2013 . My Internal Medicine doctor sent me to an Oncologist for evaluation when my platelets into in the 750 range. The original blood tests done by the oncologist showed a JAK2 mutation and I was given the diagnosis of ET. I was prescribed 500 mg Hydroxyurea along with 81mg. aspirin per day since at that time I was 68 yrs. I have remained on those meds since 2016.
In 2017 after a change in doctors I had a bone marrow biopsy that showed no other significant abnormalities. My medications have remained the same. Presently I see the oncologist every 6 months with a CBC and Metabolic Panel every 3 months. Covid has limited my appointments to online visits as the doctor does not identify any physical complaints or events I have had as being ET related.and my blood levels have remained stable. Recently I have been experiencing a fullness in my upper abdomen along with some intermittent pain under and below my right ribcage. I am wondering if this could indicate an issue with my spleen. I am not due to see my doctor until June.
