Discussions that mention prednisone

Anemia board


My hema had no answers for me today. My platelets were way up, which is pretty normal for me, as I have no spleen. She said perhaps my platelets had become unfunctional. She wasn't concerned. I don't think very much of her now for several reasons. 1. My ferritin level was 10, which she pronounced "good." 2. She always forgets I don't have a spleen. 3. She never has any insight into anything, and she also forgets that I'm not on Prednisone.

I'm seriously considering not seeing her anymore:mad:. Why pay more for the same info I could get from my reg dr?
