After 18 years since I relapsed and the ITP returned, I have achieved an increase in platelets on my own, that is without any treatments. I usually run a count of between 15 and 25 and it's been running steadily along that line for years. I went for my 6 monthly check up last Wednesday and had a count of 38!!!! not much but to me it's brilliant. Quite chuffed. Here's hoping the trend continues upwards. Merry Christmas all, may you have quality family time and a good rest after the big day.
