After three pulses of high dose dexamethasone, my platelets have crashed once again, down to 20. However my petechiae is looking a bit redder and spreading a bit and I've started my period since then so Im wondering if its decreased further due to this?
Anyway, I'm due to go on holiday in two weeks time and I was wondering if I'm okay to travel by plane. I googled it and this is what came up on itpsupport.com
'my specialist had explicitly warned us against taking me overseas: with a low platelet count of 10-20, the high air pressure of flying by plane could cause rupture to blood vessels in the brain, and the worst case scenario could be fatal.'
So its safe to say I'm a bit worried lol.
