I am 56y/o female.
None of the cancer sites even list Myelofibrosis on ANY of the pull down menus ~sigh~
I was initially diagnosed with Myelofibrosis in 2006 using blood smears (tear drop shape rbc), ABL-BCR test and bone marrow biopsy. I was recently tested for JAK2 and I am positive for it. So it's for sure myelofibrosis.
My platelets have been high since 1998 for unknown reasons. My other blood cell counts have been stable until this year, when they began a slow but steady descent. RBC are below normal, hemoglobin hanging on the edge of the cliff and WBC are marching ever downward. Even my platelets, which have always been high, are now falling and nearing the normal range!!
