I hope you have all had a nice day
So I went for my pre-op this week and had been booked in for lap on 22nd July but at pre op the nurse informed me that I may not be able to have it done because I've been on so many courses of prednisolone steroids for asthma. I developed awful asthma last July after having a reaction to zoladex, though not one doctor spotted it (despite me telling them) so I had a full 6month course of it, admitted to hospital for at least a week each month after the injection, and narrowly some how just avoided intensive care.
Anyhows, since the zoladex stopped I've not been into hospital, but have had steroids at the first sign of any cold, cough or splutter, my most recent course being 3weeks ago.
The pre op nurse said it depends on the anaesthetist on that day so I'm left to wait in limbo to find out what they decide.
Also I had some routine bloods taken And the next day my gp had been sent the results and called me as my platelet count is only at 117 which is not too low but norm is 150-400. I have to wait till next wed to see gp and find out what that means for the op.
I'm so impatient though, I've waited so long for this! So I thought id ask if any of you have had any similar problems before surgery and if surgery went ahead or not?
Anyone know much about low platelet count too? I've read that the steroids are meant to make your count higher so baffled with the amount I've had!!
Thanks in advance xxx
