Polycythemia Vera treatments show details Polycythemia Vera treatments
Jan 13th, 2016

Dr. Ryan recommended chemotherapy for my polycythemia vera blood condition. She based this on her own experience in treating it in the past. After consulting with two other hemotologists including one PV specialist at Dana Farber in Boston, I found phlebotomy and not chemotherapy was the recommended therapy for me and the recommendation of leading experts backed by evidence based research. Not all patients with PV should have phlebotomy instead of chemo, but even I knew Dr. Ryan's chemotherapy recommendation was wrong for me. My PV is now managed well with phlebotomy but not with Dr. Ryan since she refused to give me this treatment option.
