My platelets are pretty steady at 50k. I'm due to have an endoscopy and biopsy of my small intestine. The doctor said ITP's not a problem, but the woman who asked him had never heard of it, so I don't know how well she explained, or whether she mentioned my count. Literature says 1 in 1000 have complications when bleeding doesn't stop by itself. My husband's in hospital for heart surgery and I have a toddler - I cannot be that 1!
Has anyone had one with a similar count? Or have any other insight?
