Re: Cell counts?
Apr 1, 2004
Usually the doctors start worrying if the platelets fall below 20,000. But the bone marrow clinic didn't worry until it was under 10,000. If the red blood count went below, I believe it was 9. something, then you received blood. And if the white goes too high they have medication. My husband used to get little red dots on his arms or legs called petechiae just under the skin. Sort of like red freckles all bunched together. This was a sign that his platelets (which help the blood to clot and stay in the skin) were getting low.
