Re: Lukemia - Low Platelet Count
when your platlets drop to 0, you need a transfusion very fast. platlets help clot your blood. if you don't have them, you can bleed to death if you hit your head or fall. it is very important to keep your platlet count up. i am in remission with AML, and with my last chemo treatment, (which was only 1/2 instead of the whole thing, i had to have 6 platlet tranfusions; and a red blood trans. it is extremely important that you continue to have the trans. in order to keep your counts up.
