: Hi, My father-in-law has just been diagnosed with TTP & I was really interested to read of the treatments in your letters. Did any of you have complete renal failure? His temperature is 103.6, white cell count 165,000 and platelets down to 17,000. He is on a respirator & they started him on steroids yesterday. They have done dialysis today and a platelet exhange. He is also purple from head to toe. Does this sound like TTP?? How long was recovery? Can you recommend any good websites? Thanks in advance.


Lynn, my name is Erick I have TTP also and if you would like to email where we can talk further please feel free to do so at ecwoody@allte.net

thanks erick
