son with itp
my son was first diagnosed with itp a year and a half ago. he will be five years old at the end of this month. when he was first diagnosed his platelet count was 7,000. he had an ivig treatment and his count quickly rose and stayed well into normal levels for eighteen months. five weeks ago his count went back down to 14,000, he had another ivig treatment. this time he had a reaction to the ivig and got aseptic memingitis. his count began to rise slowly this time. i saw patecheia today and had his count checked again this morning. it was back down to 18,000. his doctor reccomended to watch him over night and to have it checked again tomorrow morning. he has been diagnosed with chronic itp now. i am wondering if anyone has tried any other treatments besides the ivig and how they have worked for you. i am stressed and constantly worrying about my son, any info would be great.
