Avatar f tn Thanks guys, I appreciate it...
Avatar f tn Has anyone else had low platelets during pregnancy? I did w my first, had to see a hematologist, get my blood drawn all the time and ended up not being able to get an epidural. Now I'm pregnant w my second and its happening again..am I the only one?
Avatar f tn When I was pregnant with my son I had low platelets and my midwife told me that if my platelets were too low I couldn't get an epidural because I could bleed to death,and if I needed to get a c cection then I would have to get put to sleep.
Avatar f tn All my blood work has been low the hole pregnancy. 35+3 and going strong. Just did a blood draw Monday will find out Monday if it's all OK or sooner if it's important.
Avatar f tn Yes ive had it w all my pregnancys !! Th is one is mt highest im at 108. First one had blood transfusion last one no problems.
Avatar f tn I have had the problem of low blood platelets for years - they go ip and down! Had loads of tests but nothing - but im tired and have lots of head rushes during the day..any ideas what this could be? Recent fbc :- WBC 6.35 RBC. 3.94 Platelets 59 Anyone can help??
2030686 tn?1351688548 For example, amoxicillin can lead to anemia (low red blood cells), thrombocytopenia (low platelets) and leukopenia (low white blood cells). Red blood cells are responsible for carrying oxygen. White blood cells help fight infection and platelets help in wound healing. Anemia leads to fatigue and shortness of breath. Leukopenia makes you susceptible to infections and thrombocytopenia makes you prone to easy bruising and bleeding. http://www.livestrong.
Avatar f tn What is the danger zone for low platelets...mine are ok as of now, but steadily declining every blood test, just wondering.
7510956 tn?1411671417 There is no significance as to what your platelets are showing during Tx. They can go up, down, or everything in between while treating. The true number of your platelet count is the # that you started prior to Tx. Once you end Tx, your platelet count will go back to the original # 12 weeks post. When I started Tx in Jan, my platelets were 125. While on Riba and Sovaldi for 12 weeks they were 250, 280, ect. The Riba makes the #s go up instead of down, opposite of Oyslio I imagine.
Avatar f tn m 23 weeks pregnant and I just got out of the emergency room a couple days ago for a kidney infection while I was there they held me longer because I have low blood platelets that really scares me have any of you experienced low platelets? How do I raise my platelets count?
Avatar f tn I have cirrhosis and my platelets, red blood cells, and white blood cells are slightly low. My platelets run about 115, my white count runs between 3-4 and my red count bounes from low normal to just below normal. My hemoglobin is always normal. So, if you do not have cirrhosis it is usually something else causing the low counts. You haven't mentioned your exact counts. That might help. Also, what has your doctor said? This would have nothing to do with your genotype.
Avatar m tn 02 and everything else stayed low. Platelets did rise to 145. Any ideas. Have had a headache for days that no meds will help.
Avatar n tn The information you have provided are not enough to form any opinion from. If your platelet count is 80 and your prothrombin time is 14 this could be an indication of cirrhosis of the liver. Looking at two blood values is not enough to make an educated guess on anyone's health condition and doesn't explain why the doctor won't treat you. Others with similar levels have been treated. So there must be more to the story than you are presenting in your post.
Avatar f tn the post from nannyleenie about low platelets is actually myself,redeemed 1,i must have posted under nannyleenies screen name,she is my wife.my first time on tx 2 years ago,rbc went down so i needed to take procrit,i dont believe i had an emergency situation with my platlets,as i finished 48 wks of tx.im taking double shot of peg until und.,so maybe that is kicking down the platelets.they went from wk. 1 at 72,to 7o at wk. 2,to 80 at wk. 3 to 60 at last labs at wk.4.
Avatar f tn Anyone else have trouble with their platelets getting lower and lower during pregnancy? Anything to help with it?
6708370 tn?1471490210 Hey there, when I was first diagnosed with HCV it was brought to my doctors attention by my platelets being low at 67, I also had odd shaped red blood cells. She sent me to a blood specialist who dx me with HCV. At the time I was taking a lot of Advil for a torn tendon. I stopped the advil, aspirin and my platelets went up. At the time they had to be at least 100 to start a HCV trial. I got that high. Once I was SVR my platelets came up to within normal limits.
Avatar f tn Essentially Platelets are the glue that holds the blood together. Google it. Low platelets means thinner blood. 44 is very low, normal range is around 150-250. Yes, avoid a serious cut, and definitely avoid head injury or any actions that might cause one. If either happens, call a doctor ASAP. Try to stick in there, with so little time left to go it would be a shame not to complete if all possible. What's your virus count?
Avatar f tn i was told around 4 months that i had low blood platelets. then was told they got worse wen i was 5 months im 6 1/2 months now and they are going to test it again. im scared they will be worse. if so i cant have an epidural! anyone else with this problem?
Avatar f tn It seems that if your platelets were too low, your doctor would tell you on the phone and give you some instructions. Best wishes for a positive appt. on Wed. Keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Mine dropped to around 80 during tx. I remember there was someone here with dangerously low plt during tx and had to get a blood transfusion since there are no rescue drug for low plt unlike those for anemia and neutropenia. I would consult a hemo and get your gastro to discuss this topic. It's better to take into consideration for what could happen. Just be prepared.
Avatar f tn Completely normal I had nose bleeds my whole pregnancy with my second and my nose has bleed my whole pregnancy this time as well. It has to do with the increased blood volume pregnant women have. Don't worry about the cold sore either.
1693621 tn?1318902971 Yes 50 is very low platelet level, and not even on tx......... I would be surprised if they let one start tx at that low. I started with platelets in the low 80's and they droped to 29 during tx...... Me being cirrhotic they run low.
Avatar f tn post-treatment? really don't know what you are talking about, I only know you have low platelets, however, platelets can go up and down depending on the time of day, I hope this answers your question.
2025701 tn?1328919633 Only people with cirrhosis or other platelet issues need to worry about platelets dropping dangerously low. 20,000 or less. Interferon causes all treating persons platelets to drop to some degree. Obviously the more platelets you start with before treatment, the higher the platelet count will stay. For people with cirrhosis who want or need to continue treatment they can have a transfusion of platelets every so often or Promacta, a drug that raises platelet counts.
