can anyone advise if having myleofibrosis can stop you colouring your hair,
Thanks Carol xxx
Hi I have myelofibrosis may i ask how long you have had it and what drugs are you on …thank you
I was diagnosed with essential thrombocemia in 2015 was on hydroxycarbimide until it changed to myleofibrosis 2021, this was discovered when I was admitted to hosp with enlarged spleen, after a biopsy I was started on Jakavi, which shrinks the spleen, now back to normal and helping blood levels, only thing is myleofibrosis leaves you anaemic so I have to get regular blood transfusions. What about you how long since your diagnosis.
Hi @ladicaz, thanks for posting, and I hope you’re doing okay?
Hair dye is usually a concern due to the health and fragility of a person’s hair, rather than presenting a risk to the person themselves. For example, chemotherapy might affect hair, which Cancer Research UK has more information on- Using hair dye after chemotherapy| Coping with cancer | Cancer Research UK.
