I couple of mentions of drinking on this thread interested me. I have pancytopenia which has been diagnosed as myelofibrosis. I usually have a couple of glasses of wine with dinner and am so accustomed to this that it is difficult for me to quit. My hematologist did tell me to stop drinking but seemed to suggest that it was not all that important since I drink only a small amount. He was somewhat vague about it, so I'm going to bring it up again. Any comments?
