Toddler son diagnosed with ITP
Has anyone else had a small child diagnosed with ITP? How long did it last? Was it treated with IVIG or anything else?
My 16-month-old son was diagnosed about 11 days ago with ITP. He went into the hospital with a count of 1,000 and was given a treatment of IVIG. Five hours after the treatment was stopped he was tested again and his numbers went to 49,000 so he was discharged. We were so happy but very cautious. He went in for his next blood draw five days later and his number was at 125,000. His bruises are nearly gone and no petechiae reappearing so far. He gets his next blood draw on Monday, which will be 15 days after his IVIG.
I am so nervous about this! I would appreciate any one else's experiences with their little ones.
