    Very Starnge indeed. I usually don't get flustered by small changes. This was jst a bit weird. They went from testing my blood every three monthes to every month. They haven't done this since I was first diagnosed with this back in 2006. Thx for your response.

      For some strange reason my platelets have elevated. They were under control for the last year but now hagone from the 300's to the 600's. I thought it may have been from a sinus med I was taking but that was at Christmas and I haven't taken any since. They have me on one pill/day. At one time thay had me on 9 per week but I leveled off. Now I am concerned with the elevated numbers over 600. Should I be?

        When I first started taking Hydrea I would occasionally get mouth sores but I haven't had any in the last three years (I've been on Hydroxerea for 7 years). I have seen my numbers come down recently to the normal range just taking the same dosage I've been taking for a year.

Suddenly 2 monthes ago it dropped to 425,000 and when i went in for my knee surgery 8 weeks ago for my prelininary blood workup it dropped to 365,000. I have gone to the hemo doctor since the surgery and he still wants me to stay on t...

            Please explain the 1500 or age 60 to me. I am 57 and have been on Hydrox for four years. Platelet level have been at 700 lately and they have put me on 7  hydrox pills a week. I'm confused as to what this hydrox is doing to my body over long period of time. Thx

              Just had another appointment with my hemo-doctor. Readings for platelets went up to 700 (while taking 5 pills of Hyrox a week). Now, he has moved me up to 7 pills a week. Very depressed. Have not had a normal range reading since 2008. Each time the doctor checks he increases the dosage. In 2008 I was taking 3 pills a week with avearge reading of 500. In 2009 it was 572 (3 pills per week). In 2010 it was 558 (went fro...
