Any body else having Platelet Problem's.???


Recommended Posts

Wife was unable to recieve treatment this week due to low platelet's. This is the second time in a row this has happened. She recieved 2 bag's of platelet's about 3 week's ago and this week her count was only 12,000. They had her go back to lab and do a blue cap blood test for her platelet's.The nurse said that she is not sure as to why she is having trouble rebuilding her platelet count's.So thought i would check in to the gang here and see what experiences you all have had....Larry

Larry, Dennis did have some problems with this. We had to postpone chemo several times because of this. Sorry to hear your wife is having a problem. Hope things get straightened out soon.

I think it's the treatment that causes low platelets sometimes, Larry. I had them low a couple times and had rapid heart beat along with it. Blood transfusion helped alot and then I was able to have chemo again.

Maybe waiting a week will help.

Check her heart rate a couple times a day and if it shoots up, then it is time to call the doctor.
