Re: Large platelets
Dec 20, 2008
Hi Joodles62,
I'm so sorry to hear about your daughter. She's so young.
I myself had high platelets which went up to 952. But i have been placed on a med. recently, and now they dropped to 187.
As to what can be causing the high platelets on your daughter; well the doc. would need to probebly run a few more test to determine the cause.
How long have her platelets been up? Is she feeling sick?
Joodles, I certainly wouldn't want to mislead you in any way. But i think you need to ask questions to her doctor, ask him to explain if he will run test and which ones.
I belong to another forum board. It has been such a blessing to me, to be able to talk with other people who are going thru similar situations. (I was dx'd with PV back in '03) And Joodles, I by no means am saying that your daughter has any type of a disorder. But i am saying that they need to get to find out what's going on with her platelets and why.
So in the meantime, if you would like to go check out the forum, here's the website:
go to the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society BBS
Click on the Discussion Board.... & then scroll almost all the way down to the bottom, to:
Living with Myeloproliferative Disorders (i.e., Polycythemia Vera, Essential Thrombocythemia).........
open the topic: "glad i found this forum" that's where we have been posting the most. You'll get to meet the others there.
You'll find that there's some great ladies who are very supportive and will probebly be able to share some good advice with you.
Good luck to you and your daughter.
