Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome and thanks for your query.
Blood letting or donation is a way of reducing the polycythemia and the problems related to the same. If there's a cause like smoking for the polycythemia, stopping the same also would help in the long run.
If you have specific symptoms, I may be able to suggest some symptomatic treatment.

I havehad blood removed. My blood count yesterday was 14.6 hemoglobins.
The blood letting has not lessened my pressure in the head. Alergist isn't sure that an endoscope after removing the matter behind my right eye will do the trick either.
I'd like to know if any of these doctors is missing anything? Your thoughts.

Brief Answer:
Please upload the CT

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for your input. Hb of 14.6 is normal and hence not the cause of your discomfort. Please upload the CT scan report so that I understand what exactly is the problem and I would make some suggestions based on the findings
