Blood test this morning at 08.40, followed by appointment with Dr L in Haematology Outpatients. Platelets slightly up at 532 compared with 526 last time, Neutrophils a bit better at 1.73, but no change in the Hydroxycarbamide medication is recommended, Dr L handed us a list of things to look out for and to be reported to the 24-hour chemotherapy advice service. Patients are supposed to have a 'Chemotherapy Alert Card, the first we had heard of this.

Dr L said he would remind Dr Harrison at St Thomas's, who is following up 24 patients with the C-MPL W515L from the May 2008 study published in the journal Blood, that she was going to see me.
