I was diagnosed with polycythemia Vera in 2009. I was

I was diagnosed with polycythemia Vera in 2009. I was treated with phlebotomies until it normalized. Have since been diagnosed with MS. I recently had my teeth extracted to get dentures. I had been on Plavix for several years, had carotid endartorectomy, a bovine valve put in my heart... The doctor stopped the Plavix and had me give myself Lovenox injections for five days, then I had the extractions. I hemorrhaged and had to be lifeflighted to a large hospital in St. Louis. I received blood transfusions while there, then was put on ferrous sulfate when I got home. Now, the polycythemia has kicked back in! I am so discouraged over all of this. Can you help me?
