Recently I was told by my doctor that I have been diagnosed as Jak2 V617F Mutation positive.  I am 76 years old, healthy and exercise daily.  Currently I am under no medication except 81mg aspirin, which I have taken since age 65.  My platelet count  exceeded 400k level about 8 years ago and has increased and decreased above the level to 601k which is the highest level been tested.  I have no other symptoms at this time.  My red and white blood cells have tested normal at all times.  My doctor advised me to take hydroxurea, which I decided against after reading its side effects.  Instead, he has agreed to monitor my condition every 2 months. Is there anyone out there with a condition similar to mine?
