| | ET - Blood Disorder
I am new to this message board, but am looking for some fellow ET supporters. I feel like I am on an island. Here is my delimma _ I am 49 year old female; diagnosed with ET six years ago. I have noticed that the hydrea is taking a real toll on my body - tons of wrinkles on the face, fatigue, hair falling out, etc. My doctor told me that these side effects are rare and are usually caused by our hectic lifestyle. I also failed to mention that my teeth are going to hell too (since May - have had 3 crowns, 3 cavities, and gum surgery). The doc said the hydrea does not affect the teeth. Any of you have any of these symptons?
I really want to discontinue using hydrea. Just wondering if anyone else has gone through this dilemma. My count is currently 645,000 and at its highest - it was near a million.
Would love any contact from any ET isolates.
