i was diagnosed a year ago with PV. up until now things have been okay-but now the MD wants me to start taking hydroxyurea and i am not excited about adding a chemical to my daily intake. i am only 33 and chemo forever sounds pretty unappealing. does anyone out there know anything about taking meds until their counts go down and then discontinuing them for awhile and going back to just phlebotomy? any advice would be great. thanks!
