Yes. I meet annually with my hematologist. My primary care physician monitors my clotting factors. I also see a neurologist who is monitoring the blood clot.

Tue, Aug 6 8:58am · JAK2 Mutation - Effects and Questions in Blood Cancers & Disorders

Hello,
About a year ago I was diagnosed with antiphospholipid antibody syndrome and JAK 2 Mutation following the discovery of a clot in my head. I am currently on coumadin and my other bloodwork has been normal. I know very little about JAK 2, however, I am aware that it can develop into cancer or other blood problems. The way it was explained to me by hematologist is that it may happen, but it's not a definite. Is there anything that I can do to be proactive other than having my blood drawn regularly?
Thanks so much!
