Continuing the discussion from Essential Thrombocythemia:
Hi, my name is Amanda and I have MPN(essential thrombocythemia) I have had this for 25 years and would like to think I lead a relatively normal life. Yeah I have blood tests very regularly and have to be sensible contacting people with infection, coughs and colds. I have been shielding during the pandemic. I am a dental nurse and this has meant I have had to stop all clinical duties and shield. I am awaiting my second vaccine but I am a bit worried about what is surfacing about the antibodies of people with my condition and similar blood cancers. Will this mean I cannot resume my dental nursing And if so what is safe for me to do to earn a living. I have been medicated with interferon successfully for many years now.
