Customer Question

I have polythemia vera and my onocologist told me on Wednesday I had myeloid blasts and needed treatment right away. All this came from a blood test he sent to an outside lab. I cannot get an appt. to the stem cell transplant eval until October 29. I am so scared.

This is Dr. David

I know you are scared.

but october 29 is really next week.

I am glad you are getting set up next week to see a specialist to be evaluated next week.

if your blood counts are too high before oct 29, your doctor can do phlebotomy and drain some blood out of your system to help lower your blood counts.

let me know if you have other questions.
