Christine, I hope you still visit this site. My husband has TTP and they want him to have a splenectomy... He responds very well to apheresis and this is his first relapse, I'm not even sure if it is a relapse because it has only been 2 weeks since his late apheresis... I think they stopped treatments too fast... but anyway my question to you (or anybody out there) is did you respond well to apheresis initially? and just keep relapsing? Do you think it is too soom for my husband to consider splenectomy? Any info. would be helpful.
