Ok.. so I had a huge bruise on my leg and went to the Dr.'s to get it checked out. They did blood work and my platelets had gone down to 32,000. They should be between 150,000-400,000. They were fine in May when I had my full physical. I have been taking Prednisone for 2 months now. This has not helped me at all. More prednisone.. the platelets go up a little. They lower the prednisone.. the platelets go down. At this point I want to just
taper off completely and monitor my now low platelets instead of the suggested Gama Globbin therapy, Rituxin or removal of the Spleen. If my platelets go below 30,ooo I may have to reconsider my options.
Does anyone know if it is at all possible for my platelets to raise again EVER?? I am eating SUPER healthy, vitamins and a vegetarian diet.
I would really appreciate any helpful suggestions from experience ASAP!
