I.T.P, platelets dropping :(

Last count was 99 from 105 and I have had 8 rounds of chemo. Which my count should be in the 100,000 or way more by now. Last chemo was in July, I just feel lost and don't have insurance so I feel like there is nothing I can do. Just so upset and need to talk to someone.

Re: I.T.P, platelets dropping :(

Amberyard, greetings & welcome. I'm sorry you're struggling. There's actually a board called "Blood and Blood Vessel" with recent threads on low platelets, including on ITP. To get to it:

In the blue bar above the title of this board, select "Find a Board". All boards will then display, in categories.

Now select link = "Boards by Alphabetical Order" (upper left). Now locate the "Blood and Blood Vessel" board, and select it.

This isn't to say you shouldn't post here on the Autoimmune board, of course you can! I'm only trying to help locate the groups most familiar with ITP. And maybe you'll get input from both groups, which would be great...

I don't have experience with ITP (sorry) because I have only lupus, so I hope those who do get back to you soon. With best wishes, sincerely, Vee

P.S. If you try the Blood & Blood Vessel Board, but want help on how to search for the threads that discuss ITP, just post again & I can help with that.
