Cool Re: Raised platelets?

Hi Rayon:

Uh...........what msg?I have elevated platelets and was quite interested in reading your posting,but couldn't find it.I was exposed to Agent Orange during my 1 year in Viet-Nam(1970/1971) and I was wondering about your situation.I'm trying to make a case for a VA claim and I need all the information I can get.I have Essential Thrombocytosis(also called Thrombocythemia) and I was told by an hematologist/oncologist that the condition/disease is extremely rare,YET I've read several blogs by and about Viet Vets getting/having this same condition(as well as extremely LOW platelet readings).Hoping to hear from you and thanks and GOD bless.....

Thanks for your reply. I'm not a Vietnam veteran. I hope you are successful in your quest.
